Virgin Media take off channels

Bloody Virgin Media have refused to pay UKTV what they are asking for their channels, so have removed a load of channels - including Dave. Now, I don't watch a lot on Dave...but I do watch Taskmaster and now I can't. Bastards!!
And to add insult to injury - they've replaced it with; Premier Sport - a poxy sport channel currently showing cocking football. Bastards!
Will I get a refund I wonder? Bastards!

Well, even though this post was completely ignored (as are many of mine, I swear I must wear an invisibility cloak when I'm on MN grin) I am delighted to say Virgin are reinstating these tv channels. I got an upgraded V6 box and a reduced monthly price for my complaint, so as those FB/insta/Twitter knobjockeys would say ; #winning

Oh really, well that serves me right then! I was just so indignant that I couldn't watch Task,aster that I needed to vent my ire immediately ....... didn't think to look for an existing thread confused
Good news is according to BBC news free to view channels have already been reinstated.

Oooh does that include Drama? I'm being connected on Tuesday (after 2 years without broadband or recordable telly - can't wait!) and I was hoping I'd be able to record things from it.
