    News Corp had just announced the acquisition of DirecTV

    http://www.newscorp.com/news/news_188.html

    for those who doesn't know, News Corp is the current owner of StarTV. now that they are under the same umbrella, perhaps there is a slight chance, just a really slight one, that DirecTV and StarTv will do some channel sharing?

    it will be a dream of many N. Americans badminton fanatics to get StarSports, which holds the right to many badminton even broadcasts.

    just a hope.

    Kwun, let me know when that really happens. I'd get a dish at that time.
    For now, I'd stick with my cable....:)
