Correct me if I'm wrong but hasn't Yahoo! got a stake in VVTV, 5% if my memory serves me right...

Wouldn't VVTV be a good take over target for Yahoo!? That way they get a 'traditional' channel to plug their e-commerce services. A shopping channel would certainly be a HUGE benefit on other competitors like e-bay, Amazon & MSN. VVTV that runs ShopNBC already has a program called
``The Yahoo! Shopping Hour' and is represented on Yahoo! shopping.

It's a profitable company and I think it would make Yahoo!'s shopping & auction platform an even more unique shopping destination with an attractive off line component to reach the off line shoppers.
