I’m missing channels on my Virgin TV


Which TV box do you have?


Check your Service Status

First, please check our Service status page for up to the minute information on known issues in your area.


Virgin TV V6

Is the channel in your TV pack?

It’s an obvious one, but is the channel available on your package? Check out our channel listing, which tells you which channels go with which package.

Channel not broadcasting

Another check to make is does the channel broadcast at the time that you are trying to view it? You can check this on the Mini Guide at the bottom of your television screen, or on the main Programme guide.

Account up to date

Maybe you’ve recently made a payment, which may not have reached your Virgin Media account in time? Please visit our Billing Help section for details on how long payments take to reach your account.
