I would love Virgin to have Sky Atlantic in time for games of thrones but we know it wont happen too sky been greedy. I left Sky last year for Virgin and by far a better service in my opinion is Virgin the way sky treat its customers and the way it treated me leaving which basically nearly ended up me taking them to court. I hope in future theres some kind of new guide lines or law to make the competion fair so Virgin can be the channels at a competative rate and not Skys high demand prices.
Game of Thrones is Sky Atlantic's only real draw. Can't see them adding it while the current season in on.
If we're going to get it, I suspect it might be if VM can't get BT Sports as a replacement for ESPN in the XL package because BT want too much money. At that stage, the XL package takes a pretty big hit that will get the churn numbers up again - ponying up Sky's asking price for Atlantic might keep the natives from getting too reckless.
