Talks between Virgin Media and UKTV failed to solve an impasse over fees and 10 channels, including five which are free-to-air, disappeared from Virgin Media subscribers' televisions at 00.01am on Sunday.

Free-to-air channels Dave, Drama, Home, Really and Yesterday, along with paid-for channels Gold, Alibi, Eden, Good Food and W were all taken off Virgin boxes on Sunday, because of a dispute with UKTV.

At the moment, Virgin Media says it is trying to resolve the dispute and is considering letting customers leave their contract penalty-free on a case-by-case basis.

Looks like these disputes are the future. Just remember Sky/Discovery, Channel 4 HD/Freesat and TF1/TNT....

No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

Just goes to show, don't put all your eggs in one basket, cos if you travel that ploughed field without using a 2CV, they're gonna break... :-rofl2

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

For most, a £15 aerial will sort out the issue.
