Virgin Media to offer reduced Sky channel bundles

Virgin Media is to reduce the price it charges its customers for Sky premium channels from this summer.

In March, Ofcom's investigation into the UK pay TV market ruled that Sky must offer to supply Sky Sports 1 and 2 to other platforms at a wholesale price set by the regulator.

Earlier this month Virgin Media confirmed the sale of its TV channels to Sky which resulted in both companies entering new carriage agreements to secure wholesale distribution of Sky's basic channel line-up, and the newly acquired Virgin Media TV (VMtv) channels including Living, Challenge and Bravo, on Virgin's TV service.
