Setanta Sports News launches this Thursday

A reminder the new Setanta and Virgin Media joint venture channel – Setanta Sports News – launching this coming Thursday (29th) on Virgin Media channel 518. Content will be similar to Sky Sports News which was removed from the Virgin Media channel lineup (along with the other Sky basic channels) earlier this year, following price negotiation disputes for renewal of the Sky basics. The new channel will also be available free-to-air on digital satellite. Setanta Sports News is currently testing (hidden) on some ex-NTL set top boxes.
