Interesting responses.

I'm speculating wildly here, but I would expect organisations like Blockbuster or Lovefilm to offer PPV movies directly to YouView viewers. Thus circumnavigating some of BT's...

However in the past I remember that the outlook...

No it isn't. They bizzarely thought it was a good idea to return to staging the next round draw on a Monday lunchtime because it was 'traditional'.

It's a wonder they didn't show the games in black...
