Important news about your TV services
Why is this happening?
MMDS (Multichannel Multipoint Distribution System) is a broadcast TV platform that Virgin Media (then UPC) acquired when it purchased both Chorus (2004) and NTL in 2005. This enabled the provision of TV to customers outside of our cable network.
MMDS is offered in the 2.6Ghz spectrum band and is provided under a 2.6Ghz spectrum licence granted by ComReg (the Commission for Communications Regulation).
From April 18th this licence will expire and this means we’ll no longer be able to bring our MMDS TV service to MMDS customers.
