Virgin to buy the ITV2 +1 slot for Virgin 1?

There are reports online that Virgin are considering buying one of ITV’s Freeview slots off them (the space currently used for ITV2 +1) to launch their new channel, Virgin 1. Originally it was thought the Ftn slot would be used for the new channel, but (as it’s only a 12 hour slot – and ITV2 +1 uses a 24 hour slot) they might not be – meaning Ftn might stay on Freeview after all. Virgin 1 is expected to launch in September/October.
