Free channels for children?

Are VM going to be offering free kids channels if they are to be off for several weeks?  Sky has announced this so I am hoping VM will follow..

Re: Free channels for children?

Hi,

I am already paying for these childrens channels as I added them to my package in February. Will Virgin be refunding customers for the period that they have made the channels free for.

Some elderly & vulnerable people are getting free food from the Government, so shouldn't we all get it? Nope.

This is a national crisis (well international crisis), and amongst other things the channel owners have decided (as they can & often do at certain times throughout the year) to offer a freeview period to those that do not normally receive their channels. Virgin can only do this with their agreement. This happens on all pay platforms regularly, especially around Christmas. So why is now any different.
