Assuming Virgin Media is not your only option for TV and that your TV may have Freeview already installed if you have an aerial connection why not just connect aerial and boom you have Spike TV. TBH that channel is not really all that good it is just Rerun's of stuff that has been shown on Channel 5 / 5USA / 5Star
You can record free channels on your box, provided the channel has paid to join the Virgin platform. Whilest a channel is free to the customer, it is not free to the channel provider, who has to pay out a considerable amount of money for each separate platform they join.
Cable customer since 1993. Services: FH TV, Sky Sports & Movies (2xV+), Talk Unlim Telco, VIVID 100, Virgin PAYG Mobile
I am not missing your point, Spike is showing it first, its not on amy other channel. All I am trying to find out is why they haven't got it yet as I am amazed Virgin are not willing to provide it to its customers.
