UPDATE. November 28th:StarzPlay will be launching on Virgin Media a little later than initially planned. I'm hearing that due to technical issues, the streaming service from the U.S. premium cable network will not be launching on the Virgin Media platform tomorrow (November 29th) as originally planned. Virgin are working to remedy the issue and "ensure the best possible experience" for customers. No word yet on a revised launch date for StarzPlay.
