Not just on Tivo but Virgin do not have it at all and currently it seems Sky will not let them have it and want to keep it as an exclusive.

Re: Sky Atlantic

I often wonder how Sky explain to advertisers that their adverts are being willfully restricted to Sky subscribers only. Do sponsers pay less to advertise on this channel?

Re: Sky Atlantic

And that's a bad thing? Why shouldn't Virgin try and get the channel the lowest possible price?

 

Anyway, are you sure Sky currently want to give it to Virgin? They are making a big play of it being 'exclusive' when advertising it.

Do you know how much money sky are asking for this channel Howard? Interestingly the boss of another cable company (smallworld)  has said they can't get the channel because Sky want to keep it as an exclusive. That would suggest that even if Sky are offering it to other companies they are doing so with an unrealistic price attached to it.
