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.

"Hospital Radio"


Sharp started by making pencils.

Your local pharmacy gets its drugs from AAH, Amalgamated Anthracite
Holdings.

My business was called Wright's Aerials even though we fixed few aerials
for the last five or ten years.

ASDA was Associated Dairies

Radio Rentals didn't rent radios except in the early days

The Doncaster Free Press costs £1.15

Granada cinemas, and latterly a TV franchise, were called after a
Spanish town for no credible reason whatsoever.

Smitten by the romance of the Alhambra on a youthful walking tour,
he called his company Granada.


spit

Bleedin' Granada TV...

ATV were forced to rename themselves so as to have a name that had
relevance to their franchise region.

Granada got off scot-free...

I wonder how...

Granada got its rollicking a few years later and had to move its news
operation to (shock horror) Liverpool.

What about Mecca bingo halls?


The word Mecca already had this meaning (from the Oxford English
Dictionary):

a place which attracts people of a particular group or with a
particular interest

A couple of the quotations given a

1826 Lancet 25 Nov. 254/2 It [sc. Edinburgh] was consequently
the ‘Mecca’, the ‘Delphic Oracle’, the ‘Vale of Egeria’, to which
all studious pilgrims should resort to drink of the pure springs
of knowledge.


Now "Vale of Egeria" bingo halls would have had a touch of class.



Walking past an Asian shop this morning, I spied bottles of Mecca
Cola...

And then they buggered off back to Manchester a few years later as
soon as their franchise had been renewed.
