Re: Talking Pictures

TP has not launched on Virgin. They are timesharing with a local TV station which happens to be available on Virgin. The broadcast agreement is with the local TV station.

Re: Talking Pictures

Re: Talking Pictures

The costs involved with Broadcasting to a few thousand people in Brighton as opposed to 4+ Million people on VM's network are bound to be different. They are also piggybacking on another broadcasters operating licence.

Re: Talking Pictures

Do you work for Virgin ?? It really does sound like it.

Still doesn't explain why Virgin are failing to supply a channel that Paying Customers have been requesting for over a year.

Re: Talking Pictures

Merely stating the commercial facts of the broadcast markets. Of course if you want all these extra channels & are happy to put up with yet another price rise as a result, that's your opinion.
