It made me laugh years ago when so many people were chuffed that Sky were forced to relinquish their monopoly on televised sport. They're bad enough, for fucks sake, but the more companies you give it to, the more additional charges and subscriptions you need. Pretty sure that soon BBC and itv will lose the right to show any sport whatsoever.

There is a law in Australia that major sporting events like the Melbourne Cup, R League and AFL finals, Wimbleton Finals or the Ashes Series cricket and the like can not be show on any network that will charge for them.

Is it not the same in the UK?

Interesting; didn't know that. The government won't give a fuck about it though, and more than a few Lords and members will be influenced by friends in Sky places.....
