A History Of Virgin Media
Virgin Media was formed by a merger of Telewest and NTL in 2006, which had been being discussed since 2003. The merge made Virgin Media the largest cable provider in the country, with over 90% of the market.
NTL, Telewest and Virgin.net were officially merged with the Virgin Media brand in February 2007. At the same time, Virgin launched Virgin Central, an on-demand service, that offered shows such as Lost, Alias and The OC.
In February 2013, Liberty Global made the announcement that they had an agreement to buy Virgin Media for an estimated £15 billion in a merger of stocks and cash. The deal was granted on April 15 and was fully completed by 7th June 2014.
Virgin Media owns the only national cable network in the United Kingdom and by December 2012, it had approximately 4.8 million cable customers, with 3.79 million of these being supplied with Virgin TV services, 4.2 million with Virgin broadband and 4.1 with its fixed telephone line services.
In terms of its market share, for broadband, Virgin has a 20.2% share. In comparison, BT has 29.3% and Talk Talk has 18.5% worth of shares in the market. Its TV market share is around 30% with Freeview having the most and Sky coming in second place.
