PBS America announces new cable channel number

PBS America viewers on Virgin Media's UK network will need to get used to a new channel number.

The British offshoot of the US broadcaster, which specialises in factual programming, has announced this morning that it's moving to Virgin Media channel 273 from Tuesday 5th November 2019.

It's one of a number of changes occurring on Virgin Media's UK channel list in the next few days, with factual net Love Nature going HD only on the cable platform this week and moving to channel 275 next week. On Friday, music channel Box Upfront will become Boxmas, carrying back-to-back seasonal music on both Virgin Media and Sky.
