Meanwhile, Virgin Media have carried every Champions League and Europa League game between their free-to-air channels and their subscription channel Virgin Media Sport since the beginning of last season. Virgin also carry the Six Nations and nine games from the Champions Cup although those were already both available on their free-to-air channel.
Virgin Media is focusing on three main areas for the channel; dramas, concerts and documentaries. Other customers will have to upgrade to this tier in order to start watching free of any additional charges. Virgin TV Full House and VIP customers without a 4K television do not need to worry though as the new channel will provide full support for lower-resolution monitors.
TV3 is set to rebrand its stations as Virgin Media Television - with new channel names and a new sports channel to be launched.

The rebrand will come into effect on August 30when viewers will see the new channel identities on-air.
With English teams filling all four slots in the finals of Europe's two big football tournaments, the UK's TV providers are falling over themselves to try and ensure as many people as possible tune into the action via their services. On Wednesday, BT announced that BT Sport subscribers would be able to watch the Champions League final in HDRmarking the broadcaster's first foray into high dynamic range and the first time live coverage has ever been shown in HDR on a mobile device. But today, Virgin has announced that its own TV customers will be able to watch both the Champions League and Europa League finals without the need for an additional BT Sport subscription. In other words, if you already get Virgin TV, you can watch both finals for free.
The launch marks the first time all of UKTV's linear channels are available together as part of a multiplatform service. The extension of our partnership with Virgin Media is a mark of UKTV's commitment to providing viewers with even more access to our award-winning and increasingly popular channels. We're delighted our customers are the first to get to watch every UKTV channel wherever they are.

Virgin Media began notifying its customers of the reduced service on Thursday evening, while a message on the affected channels appeared on Friday stating: "This channel is being replaced from Sunday. New channels have since been announced that will help repopulate its platform, including Vice TV and FreeSports. Plot: With the HBO fantasy series gearing up to a close, this penultimate season will pick up where the last left off; with Cersei in power and the Mother of Dragons en route to Westeros.
As a bonus, across all packages both YouTube and Netflix exist as red button services on two fixed channels for easy access. There was some confusion about what channels you can and cannot get on Virgin Media, largely because of its dispute with UKTV in the summer of The BBC — which half-owns UKTV — insisted on retaining on-demand rights to some of its comedy and drama shows on both free-to-air and pay stations.
