I;m thinking about upgrading to V+ and are you saying that the free-to-air channels such as BBCs, ITV, C4 etc will all be WS?

The BBC's, ITV's, C4's and Five's are already widescreen.
It wouldn't be a test if everyone could see it.
Eurosport isn't owned by Virgin Media Television, it's up to their owners TF1 Group to broadcast it in widescreen.

By "Virgin Channels" I was referring to the channels owned by Virgin Media TV (Virgin1, Living, Living 2, Trouble, Bravo, Challenge). I've updated the main post to make that clear. Other channels depend on the supplier: all BBC, C4, ITV, Five, Nat Geo, UKTV and Sky channels are widescreen already.
