Re: tv channels

The TV component of the Big Easy bundle and Freeview are different.

Freeview is a set of channels delivered via an external aerial. TV M is the Virgin Media 'free' bundle of channels delivered via the cable network.

Freeview contains some channels that TV M does not and TV M contains some channels that Freeview doesn't.

Re: tv channels

Thanks for reply.
Find it strange that they dont put on all the freeview stuff as well, instead if you want to watch a freeview channel you have to change your tv to the freeview mode, which doesnt work in my area due to hills.
Gotta admit , i think skys interface is also far superior, virgins is dated and takes forever.

Re: tv channels

Freeview is a platform operated by a commercial company, which broadcasters pay to join, just as Virgin is a pay platform which broadcasters pay to join. The "free" bit only means its free to the viewer. Its not free to the broadcaster to join any platform, & they have to make a commercial decision as to where their money goes.
