In this day and age we are all more than ever wired to the news.
When it comes to the US..we are all more tuned in for a litany of reasons...now more than ever.
Yet you have HD options for obscure channels, that nobody truely watches..like Comedy Gold, NHK World Japan, F24EngHD, Bloomberg TV HD
Keep those 'low interest' HD channels if you deem them worthy..
*BUT* add a channel that truely matters to discerning customers with an IQ in excess of their shoe size..
In these uncertain times, I know that I..and others..look towards BBC News 24 HD, Sky News HD..and then for the real US insight, we go to CNN - which you still resolutely refuse to offer in HD. A channel that actually matters, vs the comedy and old age sites :-((
Give us CNN in HD please. Your more intelligent customers would be grateful..even if not always agreeing with opinions on said platform. It's an excellent channel for keeping us informed of what is happening in the US...arguably more useful than rewatching episodes of 'Only Fools And Horses' endlessly.
What channel versions are available are up to the broadcaster, not the provider.
The only provider carrying CNN HD is Sky. All the others carry it in SD. On Virgin CNN SD is just a rebroadcast of a satellite feed. HD channels have to be fed uncompressed direct to Virgin’s master headend, which is also the responsibility of the broadcaster.
If CNN wanted to be on VM in HD, they would arrange it.
VM BB TV Landline. Freeview/Freesat HD, ASDA/Tesco PAYG Mobile. Customer since 1993
