Missing films on Sky Movies on demand

Hello, why are some films missing from the virgin media’s Sky Cinema on demand service?

Disney’s A Christmas Carol is available to Sky subscribers via Sky Go and also to virgin media subscribers via the Sky Movies app. However, this film is missing when browsing via the V6 box.

This has happened with other films before.

Does anyone know if this is a mistake, or if only a subset of films are available via virgin’s platform?

Many thanks!

This happens many times. There seems to be no kind of quality check by anyone as it's always down to the customer to bring up their own content is missing.
Either it takes several days of chasing or they come back with a we can only supply what Sky gives us message which is a complete joke when we can see it through other means.

I have checked and we haven't got anything back from the team as of yet. I will chase this to see when we will be getting an update on this issue.

 

Has this happened to any other movies that you've tried to watch, since you last posted?

 

Regards

Thanks Steven, much appreciated. I was considering opening a Twitter account for the purpose of raising the issue with VM there. Do you think they’d be more likely to investigate via that route, please?

I haven’t noticed anything since this one, but it’s definitely happened before.

Sorry about this. It's due to licensing from the content provider.
