Why is Sony Channel plus one hour being removed, it is quite helpful being that I can't record what I might need to
It could be Sony couldn't justify the expense of renewing carriage during contract negotiations, especially when it it is so far down the TV Guide at 220. It could be a cost saving.
Maybe Sony decided to use the money to pay for one of their non+1 channels, Pop Max, instead? It is likely to have higher ratings than a +1 channel.
To be clear I've not heard anything, I'm just speculating. My reasoning for the latter suggestion is Pop Max is the only main channel of Sony's that isn't carried on Virgin Media.
