Hmm I can't access the page you quote but I think it must have something to do with Sky who seem to be taking over the world in conjunction with Tesco
Its not a good sign as far as I can see

Thanks Becky it worked this time
I just wonder who actually owns Talk Sport and Absolute Radio
I would bet that at least one of them is a Sky company
Does anyone know?

TalkSport is owned by UTV, but was co-owned by News International and run by former Sun editor Kelvin Mackenzie until about 5 years ago. I would imagine they still have connections as it makes commercial sense to do so.

Absolute is owned by an Indian media company, after they bought it off Scottish TV a few years ago (who'd bought it off Chris Evans)

No, it didn't end well for either party.
