Really Dorky VS question here-but hopefully this is as good place as any to ask!

LIke 11 years ago flew VS to London on a A343. Right after takeoff they would show like a 5 minute news presentation that was produced by either BBC or ITN showing the latest happenings of UK , Europe and the world. At conclusion of video your personal entertainment was then activated.

Do they still show this? If not do they have news channel of sorts in the PTV selection like Lufthansa and Air France do (think they use Euronews).

Just curious if they do this to get sense if they maintain some ambiance catering to biz fliers.

They stopped it a while back possibly around the time AVOD was introduced on the LHR fleet.

Go over to v-flyer and someone will be able to give you the exact dates and reasons etc.

Would read much better if you were to skip the word "like"in your statements.   like you know what i'm saying
