Living HD placeholder now on Virgin Media
Virgin Media has launched a placeholder on its EPG for Living HD, but has no official date for when the channel will become available.

It was announced last month that Living HD would join Virgin's cable TV lineup as part of a raft of high definition channels secured by the company.

FX HD, National Geographic HD and MTVNHD are all now available on Virgin's EPG, along with Channel 4 HD.

As spotted today by members of Digital Spy's V+ HD forum, the Living channel has now shifted to position 109 on the EPG from its previous position of 110, which is now carrying a placeholder for Living HD.

Virgin Media confirmed to DS that this will be the new arrangement for both channels going forward, but could not give a firm date for the launch of Living HD, which may not arrive until September.

Meanwhile, Virgin Media Television is in active negotiations with Sky about making Living HD available to the firm's satellite TV subscribers.
