Is Sky1 back on virgin?

  WhiteTruckMan 14:47 14 Nov 2008

Just been have a quick flick through the channels in peace-a rare opportunity indeed!- and came across what looks like Sky1 on channel number 121 on my cable box. If this is indeed the same sky1 that was lost some months ago, I wonder when it came back? and why? And a side order of how? while we are at it.

I remember all the fuss it caused when it went. Strange that I havent heard anything about its return. Unless the hole I've been living in is sky proof.

Anyone else noticed this wanderer returning?

Vigin Media and Sky settled their differences earlier in the month and agreed a deal. Sky1 was aired for the first time again as of yesterday.

It only seems like about 5-6.

Shows how much I've missed it.

Wonder how badly sky's advertising revenue was hit? Or am I being just a tad too cynical, perhaps?

I wasn't aaware of that thread.

Thanks, and I think I will tick this one.

I believe in the region of £45,000,000 lost advertising revenue WTM.
