Letter: Satellite audiences

Sir: I am writing to thank you for the article on BSkyB (18 August). At last, after almost two years, I have the name of David Elstein, director of BSkyB.

I bought a new television set and a satellite dish in December 1991. I watched with immense delight every moment of the World Cup cricket, being an 85-year-old spinster devoted to cricket.

Almost immediately, Sky TV changed and charged a monthly rental. No warning was given that this change would be made. Then the cricket gave way to truck racing, kick boxing, etc, which I don't care for. So now I have a useless satellite dish.

But at least you have given me a name to complain to.

Yours faithfully,

O. M. WESLEY

Burnham-on-Sea, Somerset
