The X-Files from the very beginning, but not on Virgin Media

Channel 5 has just confirmed that they will be showing every episode of The X-Files from the very beginning on Spike.

It's been nearly a year since Channel 5 launched their new free-to-view channel and we're still waiting for it to appear on Virgin Media, I would like a Virgin Media representative to comment.

Virgin Media viewers have been missing out on all sorts: new From Dusk Till Dawn on Mondays, new Chasing Monsters on Tuesdays, new Lip Sync Battle on Wednesdays, new Transporter on Fridays and new Fight Night on Saturdays.

We've also missed out on reruns of Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead.

Sorry, but you are wasting your time asking for a comment from VM; All you will get is a scripted answer which will tell you absolutely nothing, VM never comment on channel launches, until they arrive.

It is possible VM & C5 are in negotiation over spike but we will never know until it launches or not. Given that C5 do everything on the cheap, it may be to expensive for (either C5 or VM) to put Spike on VM. Why not try contacting C5 see what they say.

Re: The X-Files from the very beginning, but not on Virgin Media

Channel 5 say that they would like to make Spike available on Virgin Media but no launch date is available at the moment, if Virgin Media won't let them due to capacity/contract I'm surprised they haven't pulled one of their +1 channels off and replaced it with Spike to get it on that way, not that they should have to.
