BBC and others report - End of the Year is the aim.

Probably aiming for an xmas holiday present

VM Should try and get Lovefilm, Blinkbox and Crackle equally on board!

Netflix is unlikely to be inclusive within people packages and be application extras like Youtube is!

Virgin Media for Spotify, Netflix and others probably add EPG numbers to be Shortcuts much like it do for Youtube!

Virgin really do need an hide channels not in my package feature (similar to the ability to hide adult channels), An HD Swap feature detected by if HDMI or Scart in use, Scart users: hide 'HD'.

Also Recording Option prompt inclusion when attempting an Recording Example: Hollyoaks on 104 that HD swapped (shows HD to those with HDMI) but firmware UI option to record in 'SD' or 'HD' as an extra step!
