    They may get somewhere with their radio campaign, but I think their proposals for TV will fail. However, we’ll see.

    Sky’s business model has worked for them extremely well, but nothing lasts forever and they are now planning for the step change to streaming in order to survive.


    VM may have been the first to have added a streamer to their package, but Sky has left them well behind.
