I think that they'll probably perhaps merge one of the Sky1, Sky1+1, or Sky1+2 Channels into Bravo and Living, and just pop them up the EPG
above Gold and Watch. You think that the channel content that Sky and VMTV have together, Cougar Town, Greys Anatomy, Simpsons, 24, Lost, that is a winning combination. So here's how it'll go.
Bravo + Sky 3, to form Sky Bravo, or Bravo (small sky logo underneath, increasingly getting bigger till it becomes Sky Bravo)
Living + Sky 2 + Sky Real Life to form Sky Living.
Virgin 1 and Sky 1 to form Sky One or, Virgin 1, part of the Sky Network
Sounds very unlikely
Living and Real Life are just too different to be a natural fit and Living is too good a brand to throw away
Bravo isn't as good a brand and Sky 3 is on Freeview. I'd say it's more likely they'd develop Bravo
Virgin1 is the only channel that's been mentioned as closing... and it has little that could transfer to Sky1.
They wouldn't be buying the channels just to see them disappear into the likes of RealLives or Sky3
