I currently subscribe to the mix TV package on Virgin Media would it work out cheaper to change it to the mixit TV package as I watch these channels on a regular basis as follows: This does not include the free to air channels which I know you get anyway regardless of what package you sign up to on virgin TV
Just downloaded the channel guide, very useful thanks. Noticed a lot of my channels greyed out recently or channel not available, some channels I used to watch are now not in my package so may have changed such as sky history. I wondered if the Fun package is being phased out but it is still listed on my contract which is monthly.
Virgin gave customers access to over 50 channels for free at the start of the pandemic. They are probably ones that you got used to watching but are now missing. Sky History used to be called the History channel and was one of the free channels for that period.
The channels that were on a free basis for a short period are listed below in the spoiler

thanks for the explanation of the removed channels, was nice while the free channels lasted.
I will continue with the fun package as long as virgin allow that, do not want to increase my bill which went up £4 annual rise above the original price.
That's entirely fair enough - just bear in mind, that over the course of time, new offers/new packages are released and legacy packages/deals slowly become less & less value, more & more expensive compared with newer deals.
