    24 hour news channel: Will be mainly local content with bulletins on the hour (comment: there isn't enough news to fill 1 1-hour bulletin a day at present -- how to fill 24??)

    NZ Herald reported (without denial from TVNZ) that there will be a high proportion of repeats on the digital platform.

    There will still be a cost barrier (albeit low -- about $200 to buy the decoder).
    re news: your not meant to watch it for 24 hours. You meant be be able to watch if for say 1 hour a day (but any hour you want).

    Re repeats: My flat mates pretty much only watch repeats of Friends (digital channel in the UK). drives me made but they are happy.

    Re decoder: All TV will include them shortly. With NZ being one of the last countries to go digital, this is a great benefit.

    CJ: Good points. TV has been around for 50+ years so there are whole generations who think Hogan's Heroes and Mash are the most original, cutting edge TV they have ever seen. How many channels of repeats are there, marketed as "UK Gold" etc etc (and yes, even whole radio stations -- I am a Hauraki fan!)

    Decoders: I am wondering if once the digital platform is up and running the `other' type of transmission will drop -- i.e. if you want to watch TV of any sort you will need a set-top box.

    In any case, my original view stands: None of this is a threat to Sky!

    See sky tv have a promo going , Is this a indication of a tough environment ahead for discretionary spending and perhaps exsisting subscribers not renewing because of reduced income?

    Have often considered buying this stock but never pulled the trigger.
    As a long term investor i like to look to the future and to be honest it seems rather murky where sky is concerned.

    The big worry is the internet , not only is it taking over from tv in terms of leisure activity of choice it also potentially could take over the actual programe deliver.

    Add in a recession where many people will be forced to choose between sky or their internet due to financial worries and you could well see a stagnation in subscriber numbers.

    I know which i would get rid of first and it wouldnt be my internet connection

    Will SKT suffer political interference as have TEL and AIA, or will they be saved by the election?

    Sky fears rivals will win numbers game
    Sky Television says it is worried that the Government may be swayed by calls to split up or otherwise hobble the broadcaster, and that numbers may be against it.

    The Culture and Heritage Ministry is conducting a review of broadcasting regulation and is due to report back to the Cabinet next month.

    Options could include the "unbundling" of Sky set-top boxes, "anti-siphoning controls" that would limit its ability to buy exclusive broadcasting rights to sporting events, and "must carry" obligations that might force Sky to carry competing channels on terms set by regulators.

    Default skt update

    SKT hasnet been mentioned since 2008 seems unbelievable...

    has been in a strong growth trend for last 6 months (along with many others) but possibly the big gamechanger and stimulus for sky has been the introduction and sucess of MYSKYHDi. Seems like everyone has upgraded and this must be great for SKY as a monthly price/value increase.

    Has suffered a big fall in last week but im thinking of jumping on to see the trend resume.

    Opinions on sky?

    Modandm.
    This company has the largest moat of any company in NZ.ie it is darn near impossible to
    set up against them.
    My sky has been a winner.In our house we now have another decoder so another $25 per month.
    Young people grow up with it and when they set up home so they get sky installed.
    Seems the churm rate is very low.

    I agree with that, percy. One of the better stocks on the NZX, IMO.

    I "inherited" my shareholding from the merger with INL some years back. I didn't like it at the time but since then, of course, newspapers have had it tough so things worked out alright!

    Don't have Sky myself - one of the few Kiwis without it but do find myself weakening at times.

    Not so sure about that , internet tv watching could explode fairly quickly.

    I already watch most of my foreign sport on http://www.justin.tv/directory/sports and also subscribe to mlb baseball

    Avatar is on justin tv at the moment on their entertainment channels , wont be on sky for months

    Neither do I. 12 channels of sh*t on Freeview - can't see the need to spend more for more channels of rubbish with Sky.

    Agree. What we need is faster broadband but John is seeing to that.

    Subscribe to sports so you can get them live direct from the operation (ie MLB, or in the future: Alll Blacks etc) and everything else can be downloaded and watched when convienent.

    In the US, most network shows can be watched on Hulu over the internet.

    What's everyones opinion on sky tv?

    It's basically a monopoly with no real competition in NZ. It's overpriced right now but if it goes back down to about $3.20 is what it was at...

    Granddaughter watches Disney and Cartoons.I used to watch business programs but now spend more time on sharetrader.
