Most likely the ever increasing charges for SKY Business

The cost to a small pub will be around 500 a month increasing to around 2.5k a month for more the larger premises as they take the rateable value of the property plus its turnover to calculate. Then you have ESPN and BT on top along with other smaller ones. Gets very expensive as a sports bar covering all sport on multi screens

Problem with Sky is the huge contracts is pays for football. Sky all those years ago realised that SKY over a satellite dish was a dead horse unless they brought something to the platform to pull people in. That was only going to survive with football but increasingly at a cost.

Now with the likes of BT who seem to be doing well unlike the collapse of ESPN in the UK and Setanta. The future with technology and how we watch TV, SKY has to keep fending of the opposition which ends up with ever increasing costs for contracts.

Did Mr M fend of ITV digital known before as OnDigital by way of sabotage through NDS the encryption people and the hiring a pro hacker under the name THOIK to hack and release the codes for download on the net. It was these codes being released that was the collapse of OnDigital. All fascinating stuff when digging deep down


The day SKY looses football the day SKY is no more.
