Sky Sports 5 HD coming to Virgin, too

Can they spread the Sky Sports coverage any thinner? Seemingly so, as the launch of Sky Sports 5 HD is confirmed for August 12th and launching on Virgin Media too.
Not sure about it being the "home of European football" for much longer - BT Sports has the rights to Champions League from summer 2015. Anyway, mustn't grumble.

Clearly, it's not a case of "spreading the coverage thinner" as it will allow more live broadcasts to be shown at the same time.
Can't deny that BT have the Champions League from next year, though.
