Sky doing something isnít necessarily a good reason for Virgin to follow depending on cost. They need to different their product offer somewhere.
You still haven't grasped the attractiveness of having all your content on one box, have you, jfman? People don't want to purchase separate equipment to access the streamers, and of course it's good to be able to search just once to see where all the content is on broadcast TV and VOD. You can also bookmark everything so it appears under 'My Shows'.

So what that says to me is that he thinks it is good for Virgin not to get Disney+ because that differentiates their product. Yeah, right!

How did you read it?

There’s a difference between minor inconvenience and being “hacked off”, I’m sure you’d agree. I’m glad however that you’ve come to realise that for Virgin, and Sky, their days are not numbered after all in this television revolution and streamers are dependent upon them to give profile to their platforms.

You are inferring meaning to the statement that I did not make. In absolute terms you said that Sky doing something automatically means it makes sense for Virgin to do so. With no consideration of cost, or value, to Virgin.
