Scala Radio

I just changed to virgin from sky. Why can't I get Scala radio? I am deeply disappointed! 

The last response mentioned virgin not being able to get it if sky can't.   Well sky does, so can you advise when you will be providing it please.

Re: Scala Radio

Hello

Scala radio will need to have an agreement with VM to be able to allow them too broadcast on the VM platform, being on Sky will have no bearing on the availability Scala radio on VM.

Re: Scala Radio

Hi Clairelb444,

Providing you have the V6 box you can go into the Apps & Games section  > All Apps > scroll down and click on Radioline.

On the screen that opens click on the search icon and type in Scala - you can then select and play that station, and also press the green thumbs up sign to add it to your favourites for next time you use the app

I'm not sure if this app is available on the older boxes.

It’s a free to air radio channel, so Scala pays the satellite operator directly & then pays a nominal fee to Sky for a guide slot. Not only does a station have to have an agreement with Virgin, there has to be a demand significant enough for Virgin to justify pumping it around its core network along with the expense & resources it takes up. This is one of the reasons Radioline was introduced.
