That will entirely depend on negotiations between the two companies. What you have to remember is Virgin is a pay only provider. There are no free channels (unless you count the ones covered by the licence fee). It is not unusual therefore that channels wanting to join Virgin will take a cut of the subscription income as part of the carriage deal. Something these channels cannot get from a "free" platform.

Spike IS available on FREEVIEW, SKY AND FREESAT so why is it such a problem on Virgin?
