Talking Pictures

I have recently switched from BT to Virgin Media and was disappointed to find that I cannot access the Talking Pictures channel on Virgin. I hope Virgin Media will add this channel which is available on Freeview 81

Re: Talking Pictures

Do you have a Freeview HD TV? Is it still connected to your rooftop aerial?

If it is then you can still get the channel. BT TV is a hybrid service combined with Freeview, so the channels received on the Freeview section through the youview boxes have nothing to do with BT.

Virgin, just as with Freeview, Freesat & Sky, are all separate platforms, & there are costs involved for channels in joining each one. If the channel ever does join Virgin: 1) There are unlikely to be any announcements before the channel actually appears. 2) The channel may not necessarily be free, as channel owners can opt to go on a higher bundle & take a cut of Virgin's revenue, even if they may be free elsewhere.
