Be very surprised if Virgin don't get it - hopefully HD and get BBC Four in HD.

BBC Four will no doubt end up suffering from budget withdrawal symptoms.

Virgin Media Sport took its EPG slot when BBC Three closed back in 2016 (116)

Can't see VM re-launching it on that number but you never know

The only program I looked at on BBC Three, when it was on Virgin Media, was Little Britain. I would miss BBC Four much more for its nostalgic music shows, if that was ever removed.

BBC Three will still show new their iPlayer exclusive programmes a week later after they are shown online.

BBC Four will never be removed from licence payers in the UK. It will continue broadcasting as an archive channel.

What's the point in a HD archive channel? Most of the stuff was recorded on film

HD is better than SD - it's really that simple. I don't really understand the point your trying to make.

I'm currently watching the Killing on BBC4 on Virgin and would love to have it in HD.

If it was recorded on film (and not video tape) then the resolution is still there in the negatives to remaster in HD. In practice though I doubt they would do that for much of the content on BBC4 which seems quite niche.
