Not sure if it was happening on Sky/Virgin but I had Magic on the BoxPlus app on FireTV on the 2nd tv and it went to an ad break but it was stuck in a loop playing the same advert over again, BoXmas was the same but the others seemed fine.

I don't know whether it's any different on Fire TV, but usually other adverts are overlaid for the online feeds, mostly their own promos.

Horror Channel currently on a breakdown slide with glitchy graphics and odd music cues playing. It also looks like the resolution of the image keeps changing. Text is getting sharper then blurry as if the picture can’t steady itself.

Must be some real gremlins in the works on Horror, problems have been persisting for over an hour now with no announcements, just the same looping slide and some whoosh noises.

Problems spilling over from Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 into Village Of The Damned. No ident, just a continuation of the breakdown loop.

Interesting how when the fault started on Freeview & YouView at 9pm, output continued as normal on Sky, Freesat and Virgin. Two different feeds of the channel then?

A new breakdown from January 2002 now where BBC One tries to join Question Time.

Let's play a game, try to notice something that's odd about this particular breakdown Laughing

Breakdown is at 0:58.

We're in this together. Stay alert.
No breakdown slide, just stayed on the ident?

It looks like a double whammy breakdown, in that the pres director tried to fix a problem that in hindsight didn't need fixing, and made things a whole lot worse by managing to take the next item in the schedule (a trail) rather than styling it out.
Write that down in your copybook now.
