Any chance we will get the channel before the Daytona 500 on the 26th?
I doubt it

Virgin Media has actively engaged with Premier Sports over the past 12 months and advised it that we’re able to make the channel available to our customers on a premium basis,” said the spokesperson.

“Unfortunately, Premier Sports has chosen to decline our proposal so we are unable to launch as it stands.”

As you may be aware, extensive negotiations have been taking place over the past 6 weeks regarding placement of the Premier Sports channel on the Virgin Media television network. These discussions have followed a number of your complaints as to the channels availability on the Sky platform but not on cable.

Whilst Virgin Media acknowledges Premier Sports as a growing sports channel and the exclusive provider of NHL, NASCAR, Blue Square Premier, NRL and Championship Rugby League, Virgin do not believe the channel currently merits a position within any of its current TV packages (M+, L or XL), as presently afforded to other sports channels.

Premier Sports is committed to showcasing its current and growing sports content to the widest possible available audience and regrets Virgin’s decision in this regard. We will continue to offer our channel to our satellite customers and remain at all times open to re-entering discussions with Virgin at any stage should their position change.
