Some channels were made available on all TV packs as part of Virgin Media's Covid-19 support to customers. These changes have now ended and channels returned to the TV packs and Personal Picks they were originally in.

thanks for getting back to me, I have noticed one particular and that’s TLC - we watch this a lot and a few days ago it just dropped off and hasn’t come back again. There are other channels which I cannot recall but I have checked against our package and from memory that others are missing too.
Mixit TV doesnt actually have TLC when you check the guide it is included in the Entertainment and Lifestyle personal picks, when was you install done, as during the first part of lockdown VM did give a lot of channels for free. TLC is only included in the maxit package.

Virgin have supplied over 50 channels for free, all for a limited period since the start of the current Covid epidemic. They actually extended the free periods for a number of the channels, however the free viewing periods have now ended.
I have made a list of the free channels that were offered in the spoiler at the bottom of this post.
You could regrade your package bundle to access more channels or you can purchase small bundles to add extra channels.
