Virgin Media Four, also called Virgin Four,[1] is an Irish television channel from Virgin Media Television.[2][3]

The channel focuses on general entertainment programming from both Ireland and the UK as well as weekly coverage of the NFL.

The channel launched on 24 August 2022.


Virgin Media Ireland confirmed it would launch a new channel in August 2022, at a Virgin Media Showcase event. The channel is currently available on Saorview, Virgin Media and Sky. It's currently unknown if the channel will be made available to watch on the Virgin Media Player.

The channels programming is largely a replay of previously aired content from across Virgin Media channels with little investment in Irish content. The channels schedule is dependent on content from UK broadcaster ITV and generally broadcasts double episodes of programmes to fill its schedule.

On 16 March 2023, the channel began testing on Sky, using the frequency 12363 V 27500 2/3 DVB-S2 8PSK,[4][5] and was launched on Sky on 27 April 2023 on channel 160 and 159(Sky Glass)[6]
