British online genealogy consolidation

According to an article in the (Glasgow) Herald a rising star in the UK online genealogy scene has been taken over.

They report that Title Research Group, owners of Findmypast.com, has been acquired by DC Thomson, owners of Scotland Online and operators of ScotlandsPeople which claims to be one of the largest online sources of original genealogical information.

As a findmypast.com subscriber I'm interested to see what this will mean. Scotlandspeople works on a pay per view voucher system. Findmypast offers both voucher and subscription-based service which, although I've not done the calculation appears to be better value for my usage.
