There’s no pretending that the war between BT Sport and Sky Sports is a very real thing. Ever since BT Sport launched off the back of a surprise purchase of Premier League football rights, it’s been all out war to gather up the rights for as many sports as possible. On the Sky side, they’ve locked down cricket, tennis and golf broadcasts for a number of years, alongside Spanish La Liga football and many others. For BT, it’s meant scooping up FA cup action, Europa League and Champions League football, amongst countless other sports.

Sky Atlantic programmes 2016

2015 was a huge year for Sky’s TV efforts. Backed by a war chest of £600 million in funding for new programming, the combined forces of Sky’s entertainment channels have been at work commissioning bold new series like The Last Panthers and Fortitude, alongside bringing great programmes from overseas like The Muppets, Game of Thrones and Dag. Needless to say, it was a year that saw Sky go from TV service to creator of some of the UK’s most loved and talked about TV programmes. That shift was far from accidental, and as we move into 2016, it’s something that Sky are looking to keep up, especially as Virgin Media come nipping at their heels with the launch of their AMC channel.

My Sky Contact

Sky TV requires little introduction, but we’ll give you one anyway. Launched on the 2nd of November, 1990, the service has grown from a three channel offering with prohibitively high prices into a part of everyday life for millions of people. Today, Sky TV is home to over a thousand channels, some in HD and even some in 3D, meaning that there are now more ways to watch than ever before. Perhaps the biggest innovation in Sky’s young life so far though has been the introduction of Sky+.

Sky broadband contact

Whilst Sky are best known for their excellent TV service, it’s their broadband offering which has perhaps the greatest impact on customers. Each and every day we rely on the Internet to help us do what we need to get done. From social media to banking, there’s barely any part of our lives which hasn’t been touched by the expansion of the Internet, and so, broadband has become essential in our lives. Sky Broadband is one of the newest members of the Sky services family, so where did it come from?
