I was intrigued by a comment from an expert on one of these late
night phone ins the other day about the great plan for Sky is to be
completely internet based in a few years, thus no dish will be needed.
Does this not in effect make them a cable company?
If they do go this route, where would that leave freesat?


And they would have to change the name, too.


Like Carphone Warehouse hasn't.


And like storecasting services such as "Asda FM" should, but haven't.

What should Sky call themselves if they did move entirely to cable, I
wonder? - "Ground" perhaps, or "Green Box"?
