If brains were dynamite Sky TV wouldn’t have enough to blow their nose

You are probably wondering why I put an advert from Facebook and Sky TV on this post. Well, look carefully, it shows how retarded their business model is when they are giving away free Wifi cables. Think about it.

Meanwhile people are leaving Sky because it’s too expensive, so Sky puts the prices up.  It beggars belief really. More retarded thinking.

Sky TV is to raise the price of its basic subscription package and its sports package despite a fall in the number of subscribers according to a report.

The monthly price of Sky Basic will rise by $0.69 to $49.91, while Sky Sports will increase by $1.61 to $29.90 a month.

On May 6, the pay-TV operator warned that subscriber numbers were expected to fall further this year, leading to earnings next year missing analysts’ expectations.  

The Auckland-based company forecast it would have 830,000 subscribers at the end of its financial year on June 30. Subscriber numbers dropped 1.5 percent last financial year to 851,561.

It expects to lose 45,000 core residential pay-TV subscribers this year and gain about 25,000 subscribers for its online services such as Neon and FanPass.

Analyst Morningstar responded to that announcement by calling for the company to cut prices in order to compete with rivals like online streaming services Netflix and Lightbox.

Shares in Sky had traded at $5.49 prior to the May 6 announcement. They have yet to recover and closed up 1 percent at $4.04.

If Sky TV ever loses the Rugby then they are rooted. It is only a matter of time before they get shanked.

Their business model is rooted, restrictive and expensive. In five years time they will be struggling.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
