Virgin have a match on tonight for the CL play off. Is the match from them on TV3 or Be3? I checked both the RTÉ Guide & Saorview EPG listings to see what was going on. The RTÉ Guide said it was on TV3. The Saorview EPG I checked earlier said it was on Be3. Talk about Virgin confusing their viewers yet again.

Be3 - they moved it after advance listings were already published. Possibly when they realised that there’d be no clubs from the big countries in it. Even if they’d qualified, RTE would have picked Celtic.

Reports on other forums that VM1 ( TV3), is swapping places on the Sky EPG with TG4, so TG4 will be at 103 and VM1 & 2 will be at 104 and 105. VM3 will stay at 116. I can't believe they are giving up 103, makes a mockery of EPG with a channel with 4 in its name at number 103. Would ITV move from 103 in UK ? No chance.

And that should be done on Saorview as well, VM1, VM2 and VM3 on 4, 5 and 6 respectively.

rebrands are cool, exciting times. though i'm surprised sky didn't complain at vm being a platform now on saorview - though i guess until the BAI readvertise new muxes for Saorview for other broadcasters to be on the platform, we might then have a dtt free to air platform on par with freeview in the UK!

one day we dream
tomorrow it is a reality

and you know what they say about tomorrow lol

Have we a source for that? Not saying it’s not happening, but that’s one I find particularly hard to believe in the absence of more information.

It would be great if this pushed other brands onto saorview.
Sky could put on their news channel and advertise their packages.
Eir could put on a sports channel.

With more and more content being broadcast through streaming you wonder if sky sports, virgin sports and eir/bt could have their content on saorview through subscription to apps on the set top box.

Dream on, there is little interest from content providers. This from the BAI earlier this year

Quote:
Work undertaken by the BAI on DTT to-date revealed that market conditions would not support the launch of commercial DTT services. This work involved a number of independent reviews of the marketplace and the Mediatique research report of December 2017 supports these views.

In this context, the BAI commits to its current approach to DTT, that of commissioning an independent review approximately every three years to ascertain the capacity of the market place, including the identification of potential applicants.

BAI are really talking about a pay TV service not a free service, BAI have failed to even consider the addition of new channels on saorview and when that happens it’s usually from Free To Air providers themselves.

Same applies to FTA DTT content, no one is interested. The availability of FTA UK terrestrial and satellite overspill kills that market.

I can't copy the link for some reason, but it's on the Sky section of Digital Spy. Friend of a friend information, but guy seems confident it's happening. But admittedly, not an official quote from anyone in TV3, it's from someone who works there.

The rebrand is a mad decision so that wouldn't surprise me. The day when they decide to sell those channels will be interesting.
