GB News is still to raise the $55-$65 million needed to launch the project
its not petty change we are talking about so i gather this will be put on the "long finger" for a number of reasons including the current pandemic and requirements of further investment its not like Sky can afford to toss 50 odd million @ any project right now since they are still licking their wounds after the latest failed attempt PPV EPL Football Scam scandal :eek:

i would not hold my breath on this happening until probably near the end of this year if ever things will start to get back to any sort of normality : )
