TELEWEST'S SLOW PURSUIT OF BRITISH SKY BROADCASTING.

Britain's Telewest communications' efforts at acquiring its competitor, British Sky Broadcasting in order to become dominant in Britain's digital television market has encountered unusual hardware delays which are impeding the acquisition. There is a shortage of set-top boxes available for the needed decoding of digital transmission signals by its customers. While Telewest expects to have one-half million subscribers for its digital television service by March of 2001, this represents a 3-month delay from its earlier projections. Recent suspension of its marketing of the digital-TV service is indicative of the delays which it is encountering in obtaining set-top boxes.
