test4 = evening update
test5 = news on the hour
test6 = stargate atlantis

I think we'll get the channels back eventually. Sky are just waiting 'till the last minute before they have to go to court then they'll strike a deal with Virgin.

Result: Sky get loads of new customers and money from VM. ;)

Just my thought on it, I'm not a Sky CEO! lol

No, Sky completely pulled the feed. The EPG is added by Virgin from a different source. You will also notice differences in program descriptions between Virgin and Sky on sat.
