RE: [sharechat] force corp

I doubt IHUG will be able to develop a national digital transmission
platform which will be competitive with the bigger players (SKY,
Telstra/Saturn, Telecom, TVNZ??).  That leaves them as a service provider
and to this point a reasonably successful one.  But will any service
provider in NZ be successful in the long run, if you can't offer rugby and
cricket on TV?  That is, will Sky be able to use its strangle hold on the
two biggest media draw cards in NZ, to dominate other media?  I would guess
the answer is yes, especially if Sky hooks up with Telecom and is able to
provide a full, unrivalled media/communications/internet package that comes
once a month on a single bill.
