Itís probably a fair comment with UKTV and other smaller third party channel disputes.

Don't care about the football but TNT sports is a must for the rugby and MotoGP

Numbers have fallen as they've taken BT sports out of the main tv pack. This is a cock up of VMs making again.
How is it Virgin Media's fault? They were told to take it out of the main tv pack? Turner wanted more money. Now they're getting less.

specialists in failure!

Ask VM about SKY and UKTV, VM have form for this kind of behaviour.
Don't worry you can watch your RAW on netflix from next year.

Re: Virgin Media customers risk football blackout

Sky had a similar issue with Discovery not so long ago.

I suspect it is something that happens more often - but only occasionally goes public.

Indeed so, Paul. The Telegraph article cites numerous sports rights contracts, but chooses to use football as the headline.
