BSkyB wins Premier League TV rights package back from Setanta

All things considered, this makes a total mockery of the recent Competition Commission decision to disallow Project Kangaroo on the basis of creating a (perhaps highly theoretical and ultimately irrelevant) UK content monopoly, and you would surely have to be one of the Murdochs to disagree with this assertion.

And if Setanta’s future was looking shaky before now, it’s now surely looking downright bleak from this moment onwards, even though the portents have been around for a long time.
