      Ideal Sky Home!

      This is purely made-up, Something which I think we would all benefit from.
      For this to be possible Sky would need to have O2, and the Proper Home Phone Service on.

      This is how it would work,

      HUB - Similar to the BT home Hub, But better ofcourse. The HUB is the place where the main Home Phone is and also the WiFi access point.

      Mobile - The phone could connect to the HUB and make calls through that.

      Broadband - Connects to the HUB bla Bla.

      TV - This is where like you would need Sky+ or SkyHD, The USB ports could be used for a WiFi interface connecting to the Internet, Where you could stream VoD content and HD Simulcasts.

      That would complete a 4-Play like Virgin Media.

      Some random pricing,

      Sky TV - 43.50 - Sky World
      Sky Mobile - 25.00 - 250 Mins & 100 Texts (O2 Traffic atm)
      Sky Broadband - 10.00 - upto 16Mb
      Sky Talk - 5.00 - Talk Unlimited

      Total - 83.50

      in Comparison

      XL Broadband - 37.00 - Upto 20Mb tobe
      XL TV - 20.50 - 129 Channels
      AddonTV - V+ Box - 15.00, Sky Movies & Sports - 23.50
      XL Phone - 20.95 - Unlimited
      Virgin Mobile Sim - 10.00 - 300 Mins & 300 Texts

      Total - 126.95
      Saving - 43.45

      That would be an Ideal Package!

      Re: Ideal Sky Home!

      These kind of set ups worry me slightly. I don't like the idea of such little competition and with Sky, Virgin and BT doing these kind of deals there is the potential for the market to become heavily monopolised. Think of all the other mobile providers and ISP's that would loose out. This can't be good for the consumer in the long run and could stifle competition. The system itself looks very good however and I suppose we would have the advantage of a single integrated bill.
