So ever since the premier sports deal was signed I have been keeping an eye on the sports channels to see if the second premier sports channel (mentioned in the reports, as they need a further channel to be able to broadcast every Pro 14 game live) and Free Sports channels get added. So, although there is still only the one Premier Sports channel (551) it now also occupies the old ‘Dave’ position of channel 127. Also, where as it was always ‘greyed out’ as I never subscribed, now I am able to view the content even though I am still yet to subscribe. So either this is a short term trial to encourage Virgin users to subscribe, or Premier Sports has done a deal with Virgin so that if you have a particular package, you get Premier Sports without having to pay the extra subscription (hopefully it’s the latter). Also Free Sports is now up and running on the network, shown on both 130 & 553. As a side note, I’m thinking that maybe the fact that a Premier is on both 127 & 551, that one of those will ‘become’ the second specific Premier Sports channel as and when is required.
