That's quite right, you're referring to the Sky/VM dispute in 2007-8. I had forgotten that, but that also differs from this in two respects: that, in those days, Sky and VM were the only two major platforms, so they had no real competition other than each other, and that they had both pulled each other's channels, so they had their own offerings. This is different because VM remains at a disadvantage by not offering UKTV, whereas its three main competitors all do.
How much exactly will my significant monthly reduction be, having lost UKTV channels?
I am not grateful for the replacement channels, they are of no interest to me, I want an apology an explaination and as afore mentioned, information on how much Virgin are going to reduce my monthly bill.
