Why has this happened?

•As they have publicised,Virgin Media decided to cut their sports feeds to viewers on the eir network without notice as a result of a contract dispute caused by the recent decline in live sports.

•In common with other live entertainment businesses operating through this pandemic, eir sport can only pay for the sports events that actually take place. We have consistently offered fair terms to each of our live sports content providers to reflect the reduced timetable. However, Virgin Media has in response taken the unreasonable step of unilaterally withholding their feed from Virgin Media Sport viewers on the eir network.

When will this be resolved?

•We are working to resolve this as quickly as possible for our customers. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
