Changes to Virgin 1 on Freeview
On the 20th of May 2009, there’ll be a couple of changes to Virgin 1’s service on Freeview.
Firstly, Virgin 1 will go 24 hours a day (currently it’s only 12)
And secondly, there’ll be a timeshifted “+1” service – although Virgin 1 + 1 has an odd ring about it (1 and 1 makes 2?). Note that the +1 is expected to be only running for 12 hours a day
The change to a 24 hour service involves Virgin 1 moving to a different Freeview multiplex, so users may need to perform a channel re-scan to get the longer hours from 20th May.
