Liberty Global needs to be as big as the giant global players to compete effectively, to negotiate effectively for content and to avoid being gobbled up itself.
I suspect that the delay is down to the final series of Game of Thrones having just started and that Sky won't let us have SA until the final series of GOT has ended.

I'm pretty sure you are right, and it coincides with the end of the five-year carriage deal between Sky and Virgin.

Amazon Prime is coming from this Summer! Old Boy will be chuffed!

Virgin Media is to become the first Liberty Global company to integrate the Amazon Prime Video app into its TV platform.
Enrique Rodriguez, Liberty Global’s EVP and Chief Technology Officer said: “We’re excited to partner with Amazon to deliver its highly-popular content, including Amazon Originals and Exclusives, directly to our consumers. We know our customers want to see their favourite shows and programming on their big screen at home, and our partnership with streaming services like Amazon continues to make that happen.”

He decided to move back to Italy to re-join his family. Hence a generous handover period.

He's retiring, isn't he? At 64 years of age, I think that is the likely reason.
