|The morons are still here.
|In the case of the BBC it would be like the pot calling the kettle black.
They portray themselves as impartial but are far from it. I would say that SKY news is more impartial than the BBC.|
|From the ADVFN circular this morning:
The Murdoch family's pursuit of full control of Sky has received a boost, as most rivals in the British media have declined to raise objections over their latest takeover bid. It is understood that of major outlets only The Guardian, a longstanding thorn in the side of the dynasty, has complained, with other traditional antagonists including the BBC and BT not responding to an Ofcom consultation on the potential impact on media plurality of the acquisition of Sky by 21st Century Fox, according to informed sources. - Telegraph
Reason for the change of sentiment these last couple of days?|
|Average number of shares on loan up to 21.61% of shares in issue last month (feb 17.46%, jan 11.32%, dec 6.31%). No short positions greater than 0.5% have been published by the FCA. So shares being borrowed for the voting rights? There could be lots of short positions below 0.5% but I haven't trawled through those RNSs to check this.|
|I don't see why I should pay to watch adverts !
|lol thats true I am the opposite I don't watch that much TV but nearly everything I watch is subscription, mainly Discovery channels and sport!
They basically operate a 2 tier pricing system an advertised one and a negotiated one.
Having some experience of how SKY work I know a lot of what discount you get depends on how close they are to reaching targets at the time you call them.|
the other thing that i find strange is people who pay huge sky subscriptions but who watch free to air tv 99% of the time|
|I get what you are saying but problem is you never know what you are going to get to many variables.I know people who have phoned up and got nothing.|
|" you have to go through the hassle of threatening to cancel to get a good price "
For some unknown reason british people feel uncomfortable haggling
I really don't understand why
I have told friends paying an absolute fortune to Sky every month to ring up and bluff them
And they just can't do it
If anyone out there has money to burn please message me via ADVFN LOL|
|Interesting situation here over a quid below the offer price,be really surprised if the deal does not go through BUT if it does not would expect at least a £2 fall and more likely 3 or more.
Agree with you they have really lost their way a bit of late churn is up Virgin are often quite a lot cheaper and you have to go through the hassle of threatening to cancel to get a good price.Apparently their sports channels are about to get a major overhaul.
I was offered Virgin £40 cheaper than Sky but am in contract so will have to wait.|
|Interesting little run-up in the last half hour of trading today.|
|This dog was 2300p in the dot com bubble|
|True posted more because I thought the timeline info might be of interest.|
|It's the Guardian.
They are hardly going to be in agreement of anything Murdoch does, are they?|
|I think we could be below 750 without the bidFigures have been poor they are having to do hefty discounts to stop people leaving after the increases in broadband,where people can get out of contracts.Also the massive amount they payed for football is looking questionable, audience figures are down, they have all but dropped the idea of Friday night football.They fell out and almost lost all the discovery channels a couple of months back Not a great year for them imo.|
|You could well be right, pH, and it could be even worse, back to around the 750p pre-bid levels?
Let's be honest, the recent figures weren't that good, so if the Fox bid is blocked/pulled I can't see anyone else rushing in to take Sky over.|
|If for any reason it's bad, then the shares will fall by 20%|
|Expecting some news by the end of the week.
If (as expected) it's good, then the shares should be significaintly higher by this time next week.|
|Wish Sky would hurry up and notify the EC on their plans.
It's starting to get very boring.|
