    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.
    Death will be reality, Life is just an illusion.

    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.

    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...

    A wise move Percy, to get away from that desperate American hype. I reckon it is only a matter of time before sharetrader takes over. Sky has had it, I think :-)

    Industry shorthand sees BNZ employees still called 'bankers' but ANZ employees now called 'anchors'. Westpac has opted out of banking industry shorthand...

    Lot easier to have a nap watching TV.all you bright people on sharetrader keep me awake trying to keep up with you.Do not tell anyone but I had to record NASCAR races as I always fell asleep
    before the finish.When I awoke then had to fast forward to the finish to see who won!!!!Cannot do that on sharetrader.

    So they can depreciate that too? Well then that makes sense. They have 1.6 million households or something like that.
