Re: No Sky Sports

Sky Sports comes in two parts. SD and HD. The first channels for Sky Sports are the HD ones.

Unless you added Sky Sports HD along with the main subscription, your Sky Sports are on 511 and up.

Re: No Sky Sports

Hi busahale,

have you tried rebooting your equipment to see if the channels appear.

Also try using your remote control go to   Help & Settings > Help > Virgin T>  then go up to the top of the screen and click on TV Care and press OK >  Missing Channels.? > Refresh my channels list

The set top box should then search for all missing channels, this can take around 15 minutes to complete.

Re: No Sky Sports

Hi again busahale,

It's possible that the box isn't conected to the internet.

What does it say if you press Home > Help & Settings > Settings >Network

If it says it's not connected then from that screen you can press Connect to the Virgin Media Service now

Re: No Sky Sports

You might have multiple issues here. Now that you're connected, retry the channel refresh. Home > Help & Settings > Help > TV Care > I'm missing some channels.

Also make a note of BenMcr's advice in the thread above and check you're looking at the SD channels if appropriate.
