UKTV channels including Dave and Gold will be restored to Virgin Media customers, it has been announced.
It comes after a long-term agreement was struck following a row over fees.
UKTV had previously said demands for price cuts meant it could not continue its partnership with the television provider.
Before the new deal was agreed, Virgin customers also lost channels including W, Alibi, Drama, Really, Yesterday, Eden, Home and Good Food.
