Okay, so, hands up, I made a bollo of culling the 75 page thread! I had it down to 10 pages, when I clicked delete thread, and couldn't go back.

However, here is some info that i have salvaged

Unless if you've been living under a rock, or haven't been informed yet; Virmin are beginning to move their TV channels to a cardless system. This has been successfully trialled in the Leicester area for the past number of months.
Read the fine print at the bottom: https://keepup.virginmedia.com/v6upgrade/index

As of 31st January all Sly Sports HD channels will no longer be available on the Virmin cardsharing platform.
Looks like Virmin are going for an area by area approach.
The rest of the channels will soon follow; no-one knows exactly when – it could be a matter of days, months or hopefully years.

There is no way around this currently, or for the foreseeable future.

  • SkySports Main Event HD

Alternatives available:
Unless if the new Sly encryption is hacked, the future of pirated TV seems to be IPTV; make of that what you will.

This is not a discussion thread, merely a listing post, if your HD sports have gone down and your net id isnt listed, just add it in a post, and I will add to the full list.
