Re: Upcoming changes to channels

Can I ask why Movies 24 is being removed? This is pretty much the only reason my wife ordered the TV package from yourself as she can't get it from a streaming service.

Re: Upcoming changes to channels

My guess is the contract with Movies 24 has come to an end. Probably the start of the extra channels slowly being dropped now that BT is supplying Now TV content. Just my opinion though.

Re: Upcoming changes to channels

I think you could be right about Movies 24 @Hunter2660 I would have liked to still have had the W channel but overall I happy with the move from the entertainment max HD package to the Now TV big entertainment package with HD boost.

Any idea when the new Sky channel will be added to Now TV. I did hear that it would be sometime in April.

I believe Sky Documentary, Sky Nature, Sky History and Sky History 2 are all scheduled for the 7th April and all available on Now TV including BT packages

As this is a subscription channel are we able to leave mid contract then? My wife is not happy this channel is going!

Re: Upcoming changes to channels

I specifically asked the guy on live chat if this channel was going to be part of the subscription and was told yes, only now to be told its being removed, luckily I'm still within the 14 day cooling off period and need to look at what virgin or sky can offer me.
