Virgin Media and UKTV ‘kiss and make-up’ reaching deal to return channels


Virgin Media have announced all UKTV channels will be returning to the network starting immediately.

In a tweet, the company have said: “Good news! All @UKTV channels are coming back to Virgin TV starting immediately. More details to follow….”

A statement by UKTV said the two companies had agreed to ‘kiss and make-up’ following earlier decision by Virgin to remove the channels.


Last month, UKTV channels disappeared from Virgin Media TV guides, including Gold, Alibi, Dave, Eden, Drama, Home, Really and Yesterday, when the two companies failed to reach an agreement on broadcast terms.

Virgin replaced the channels with alternatives, these are said to remain when UKTV channels return.
