      I guess this will all come out in the wash although I would imagine that Virgin's statement on that would be inaccurate. Living/Bravo etc growing in popularity yet SKYONE etc decreased in popularity

      Two groups of people would swear to that, VIRGIN's retention dept & SKY's New Business dept as both are as busy as bees right now

      I'm using Sky Broadband+TV based on price and service but I've got absolutely no loyalty to them whatsoever.......What they've done to Virgin goes beyond sharp practice and I hope they get spanked for it.

      I personally would agree with the statement, over the last few years I and my Family have gradually moved more toward non Sky Channels than the likes of Sky One etc. There are only a couple of programmes we watch on Sky One, with the majority of programmes we watch now on Living, FX, Sci-Fi etc. I would say that our TV viewing would be 70% non Sky to 30% Sky Channels, this also includes Sky Movie Channels etc.
