Climbing into hole....

But I agree, if a Vodafone deal were imminent, this wouldn't have happened.

"Maybe the three major cable companies get together and buy T-Mobile," Malone said. "One could contemplate in a Trump administration Comcast and Charter* (*which is part-owned by Malone) could merge," he said, referring to the No. 1 and No. 2 cable TV providers.

Fries declares Liberty Global’s mobile future
Mike Fries says there will be just two mobile networks in every European country – and expects Liberty Global to be running one of them.
In a CNBC interview from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Fries said this meant a fixed broadband fibre-based network alongside a mobile network, adding that the operator already had a mobile network in nine markets.
“Every company of scale should have a mobile solution with seamless connectivity,” he said.

Re: John Malone/Liberty/VM General News Thread

Perhaps it's because I'm too used to reading the "output" of people like Malone and Fries and go giddy at the thought of "what a good idea larger scale means", but, how exactly does it benefit consumers when there is a choice of only two companies in anything, let alone mobile?

And lets be clear, two networks means really only means two companies because resellers are bound by what the network operator wants. Hence all the Oenreach problems, it ain't open at all, it's whatever BT says.

Only two mobile companies no thanks that will hike prices for the average consumer.

Irish Independent: Virgin Media backs new €3m TV3 drama as broadcaster develops indigenous programme output.

TV3 has secured funding from the Virgin Media group for a new €3m drama, as the broadcaster further develops its indigenous programme output.

TV3 also houses Virgin Media Solutions for the UK and Ireland, which is working on new 'addressable advertising' for the Virgin TV platform.

This will allow it to tailor ads to individuals.

Presumably the "addressable advertising" would be similar to Sky's AdSmart?
