    On 30/3/17 the pop up Power Rangers channel returns.

    I do find it odd that this wasn't on Sky last time, is this another VM exclusive?

    AFAIK no other platform carries it????????

    1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

    Perhaps a few descriptive words of what a popup channel is may help others to comment on it, I for one have never heard of one and can only imagine or is it something to do with this:-

    Its an idiotic term for a channel only ever designed to be a temporary addition to a platform. The red button Olympic feeds were pop up stations, as are the various Sky Movies rebrands Sky Movies Oscars, Sky Movies 007 etc.

    Virgin are welcome to the Power Rangers, which must really be one of the most pointless temporary additions to a platform

    E! has been on VM for years.

    I think the term comes from the use of pop up (temporary) restaurants.
