As of Monday 23rd July, Virgin TV has added ten channels – including Vice, Paramount and History – to its slate in an attempt to ease the blow of the loss of the UKTV channels.


Last week, it was announced that ten UKTV channels, including Dave, Gold, W, Drama and Alibi, would be removed from the Virgin TV service as Virgin had failed to reach an agreement over a new contract with UKTV, which is joint-owned by the BBC and Discovery.
Virgin had publicly decried the BBC's refusal to grant Virgin TV customers on-demand access to UKTV shows, while UKTV said Virgin had demanded a "huge cut in fees".
