    OMG.
    Virgin are the Media Superkings.

    Maybe it's just greed.

    I thought that company had enough money.

    I mean come on, they have their own cola brand.

    Yep, that's them too. I remember seeing it on the news and the logo's on their homepage. As for 24 they can have it. I've only seen the first season but after 4/5 of them they're probably running out of ideas and Jack's sanity by now anyway.

    ShadowXP: Wait I'm confused, I thought Sky One had the rights to 24, hence if Virgin don't settle a deal with Sky then it's no 24 for Virgin customers. Or did I miss something?

    Oh I'm sorry false alarm. Virgin are LOSING the Sky channels so we can all rest assured that their world domination plan has just been setback a minor step. [​IMG] Poor Virgin Media customers...

    Mmm. My parents have phone and broadband with them (formerly Telewest). Last week they were debating moving over to Virgin for satellite TV as well, but hearing this they're glad they didn't. Sky one's the main channel we use.
