      It has been know for a while that when Sky bought all the Virgin ran channels that there would be a big cull.

      The only one that has survived is Living and that is now going to be called Sky Living.

      Sky put out press releases and announcements last year so perhaps you should have used forums such as this first to see what was happening in the Sky World.

      The content that has been broadcast on Channel One (formerly Virgin 1) is or will be available on other channels.

      A quick search has revealed the following:
      CBS Action is showing ST:TOS & ST: DS9
      SyFy & ITV4 are both showing Quantum Leap
      Living Loves is showing The Fresh Prince of Bel Air

      Whilst most of these channels are not Free, that will be sufficient for BSkyB.

      Just what channel will appear on the terrestrial FreeView list in its place has currently not been publicised.

      For reference, there were announcements back in September with the closure of Bravo & Bravo 2.

      All the above mentioned series are also available as box sets in your local video store or on-line. Try searching eBay for any bargains.

      PlusNet Fibre since Jan 2021
      Previously Sky Fibre & Sky BB since 2010.
