Sky HD channels gone

I've unexpectedly enjoyed some extra HD channels on my Medium TV package these last few weeks; Sky One, Sky News, Sky Sports News and such like.  I haven't been billed for them - they just appeared on my guide some 2-3 weeks ago.  Sadly, today (May 10), they've been greyed out again.  Were they Virgin or Sky freebies during lockdown only? Thanks.

 

 

 

 

 

so,why have they now been retracted again?  Thabks

Can anyone tell me if these were freebies from either Virgin or Sky during the current lockdown

Re: Sky HD channels gone

I've just gone back and looked at the two emails I received from VM about the extra channels.  There is nothing in either email about these being temporary or any dates that would indicate this! Well done VM for leading customers up the garden path. I was about to call them and sit on the phone forever.  I did text them and went through a long process of getting to the correct person only to be told I don't have access to that system.  Talk about unless.

Re: Sky HD channels gone

No way, I only signed up to the Big Bundle because was told it included sky channels. No one said that they were for a limited period of time. Shocking! 

Thanks for the info.

Re: Sky HD channels gone

I have a wishlist search for science fiction movies filtered for HD only to cut down the number of rubbish movies on every channel because you cannot restrict the wishlist to 'main' channels.

So it recorded SyFy HD from April and May and this morning I got the message that I no longer subscribe to the channel so can't view them.

Tried to phone to see what was going on with my package, but none of the automated responses fitted, so happy I found the solution here.

Would have been nice to have got an e-mail from Virgin though!
