OK, I've actually had a letter from Virgin about this:

Dear Mr Clark

I am writing to confirm we have recieved your enquiry concerning a third
party's free reception of the standard terrestrial channels.

I can advise that certain properties that did have a cable service were
configured to receive these basic channels free of charge.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for bringing this issue
to our attention.

Yours sincerely

Kenneth Dugdale

make of that what you will. :)
