Potentially they could bid for the NZ rugby TV coverage for their video service, which would relaly shakeup the NZ pay tv market. 

 

 

not likely (yet) IMHO as satellite still has better coverage.

 

 

Well yes, the satellite covers anyone not living in a cave. But broadband internet coverage is probably high enough now that the gap is not commercially significant.

Small businesses are terrible IME. Family owned means staffed by related bufoons with no idea how to manage, delegate or offer service. Noone wants to complain because they always take it personally and will do their best to shaft the person over next time they need whatever service the place offers.

 

I wholeheartedly agree with this sentiment. So often I've encountered a "family business" where it's staffed by the offspring that can't make it on their own in the real world and they band together against the customer when anything goes wrong instead of taking an objective stance - I guess this is due to the fact they have to endure each other outside the workplace. There are exceptions, but they're very rare.





"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
- John Stuart Mill
