Virgin1 to broadcast 24 hours; Virgin1 +1 to launch

Virgin 1 will broadcast 24 hours a day on Freeview from the 20th May, as it has acquired a new 24-hour slot on the Freeview platform. It will move from Mux D to the new 24-hour slot on Mux A. You may need to rescan your set top box to pick up Virgin1 from the 20th May.

Also, Virgin1 +1 will launch on Freeview (channel number to be confirmed). Virgin1 +1 will take Virgin1’s current 12-hour slot (so will probably broadcast on Freeview from 6pm onwards every day).
