Because the channel's parent company have negotiated an agreement with Virgin that gives them a cut of subscription income from being on the cable platform. Some Freeview channels are also pay on the Sky platform.

best way to save money is not to get extra channels from Virgin that are also on  Freeview thus saving customers wasting extra money!
