It was never a war. Sky was ALWAYS many times more bigger and powerful then Virgin. If anything all Sky did was re-establish their status-quo of dominance over virgin.Also, where did you get this info from? some of those facts have been twisted

i didnt twist anything. it was a war, NTL tried it, then merged with telewest, then merged with Virgin.. branson clearly stated that it was time sky's dominance was broken, and the new company was in a good position to begin this. being bigger, better and more powerful doesnt mean you have to win..it's just an advantage. ask sony.sky's advertising campaign alone killed off VM.

every cable/satellite provider experiences a dip in Q2. thats just how the market is. it will pick up by Q3 and 4 as Christmas approaches.
