NTL and Telewest will be no more as of next Feb. 14 … The UK cable TV firm has confirmed it will rebrand as Virgin Media, taking on the name of the mobile operator it bought for $1.8 billion in July this year. The NTL brand won’t be missed by consumers, many of whom (myself included) have been victims of NTL’s atrocious customer service. NTL hopes that the acquisition of the Virgin Mobile brand will make its TV, broadband and landline packages more attractive in a very competitive market.
– Virgin Mobile’s web TV service, in partnership with BT Movio, launches today.
