Sky takeover blocked

The Competition and Markets Authority has blocked the Fox takeover of Sky on grounds of lack of competition.

The takeover of Fox by Disney would change the situation, but that has to go through regulators in the US, which will take time. The only thing guaranteed is that with all the uncertainty Sky staff need a union and continue to join steadily.
