You stated that Virgin are not doing themselves any favours with Sky and that Virgin might be digging their own grave which is absolute codswallop in both cases.

VM appear to be responding directly to people showing an interest in switching. Seems a pretty acceptable business practice, can't see sky going in the huff over it. Be different if they were all over the Sky forums but it's twitter.

Ofcourse i forget you are the all knowing genie my apologies sir genie.
However on the plus side it is nice seeing someone give SKY a bloody nose, maybe more will follow.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

If Discovery are pulling their channels off Sky, I wouldn't rule out the likes of Viacom and other US companies demanding higher prices. After 1/2/17, I could see a further exodus if TV companies get their own way.

More good news for VM!

These suppliers would then ask VM for increases too and guess who ends up paying?

It starts with one then others jump on the bandwagon the companies would ask sky,vm,bt etc for more money and that money must be recouped somehow and ultimately it is the consumer who ends up paying.
As much as i find it funny SKY getting a bloody nose i still applaud them for not giving in to greedy Malones demands.
Despite getting accused of speaking codswallop by our resident genie i stand by what i said SKY will retaliate and VM will be at the forefront of the retaliation due to vms behaviour in this, yes by all means drum up custom but given the circumstances vm could of just put a pinned post on their social media pages saying "Discovery and Eurosport will be available on virgin media" rather than childishly jumping on tweets to skyhelpteam and bragging that discovery will be on vm, it makes vm stoop to SKY and discoverys pathetic level.
Then again since LG took over VM they have got quite childish, maybe SKY should go crying to ofcom now afterall Malones vm would if it was sky threatening toremove channels.
SKY and vm are as bad as each other, Dicover are being very childish too telling people to contact SKY to keep discovery this creates issues for genuine concerns aka technical issues or customers needing to phone SKY for real reasons.
All 3 sky,vm and discovery need to grow up.
