Velocity Channel

Hi there, first post so please be gentle!

Whilst holidaying in the US I watched The Velocity Channel (similar content to Dicovery Turbo)

is there any chance Virgin could add this to their channels package?

Re: Velocity Channel

Virgin cannot broadcast channels that are 1) Not licenced in the UK & 2) Not available via europe based distribution satellites. The Velocity channel you speak of is not licenced to broadcast in the UK. Nor is it available via satellite outside the US, so the channel would have to organise all this before it could become available on Virgin. Velocity is one of a group of channels owned by Discovery Networks, so a decision on their part to launch a European version of the channel & set up the infrastructure to distribute & licence (& finance) it for viewers this side of the pond would have to be made.
