    And the vertical monopoly would have got worse had Murdoch been allowed to own 100 percent of BSkyB - the biggest pay per view in the UK. He already owns 40 percent of the print titles, and the cross subsidisation, and mutual plugging, was already obscene.

    I have a friend fairly high up in Virgin, and he/she could make your ears curl with tales of some of the practices there.

    One example: I had TIVO eleven years ago. Then Sky snapped up the box and squashed it.

    Only ten years later, now the non compete buy out has ended, can we get TIVO again - thanks to Virgin
