As what MFCGAVMFC said it would never be allowed to happen as SKY would hold the Monoply.....
The same reason why SKY had to sell back there shares in ITV.....

This is chinese wispers thats blown into a complete junk report. It falsely makes out this 600 million is for the whole Virgin Media company, which is total rubbish.
First this is old news anyway, so the reporter needs to do a lot of catching up, and secondly the 600 million bid is for Virgins 'channels' as in Bravo, Living, challenge and Uktv channels. This 600 million bid also may be based on virgin purchasing bbc's 50% stake in uktv, which presently the bbc have not agreed to. The full deal isnt public but certainly isnt anything to do with Sky buying and taking over Virgin in full. :)
Dont believe all you read, especially internet junk lol.
