Virgin1 is now available 24 hours a day on Freeview channel 20 in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

The channel acquired a 24 hour slot on SDN multiplex A in April, with a 1 hour timeshift channel, Virgin1+1, taking over the old 12 hours per day slot on multiplex D.

For viewers in Wales, Virgin1 only broadcasts on channel 20 from 9am to 7pm. Virgin1+1 remains accessible on channel 35 for viewing of the channel's primetime lineup starting at 7pm.
