NEWS: Virgin Media looks to bring back Sky

After changes at the top at both Sky and Virgin Media, it looks like the two could be on the verge of patching up their differences and returning Sky channels to Virgin Media subscribers.

Programmes such as Lost, 24 and of course the mighty Gladiators have been off-air to Virgin customers, but with reports of recent dialogue between the companies, the Sky channels may be set to return.

The two subscription services came to blows over pricing last year, leading Sky to take its ball away. Happily, the two companies could well be playing merrily again, which would be great news for Virgin Media consumers.

Could it be that the recent Freesat announcements have given the pair of them something to think about?
