Strong Demand for Sky+HD

We continue to see strong demand for our high quality and great value Sky+HD service, with the customer base more than doubling over the last 12 months. During the quarter we added a further 287,000 Sky+HD customers - a threefold increase on the prior year - to reach 1.6 million households.

Underpinning this performance is our innovative Sky+ technology, the enhanced picture and sound quality of HD, and our outstanding range of content from great brands. Sky+HD customers can choose from 34 channels from high quality brands spanning sports, movies, arts, drama, kids and documentaries. And now with the addition of ESPN HD, all Premier League games are available to customers in high definition.

Sky+HD was the principal driver behind growth in Sky+, which reached 5.902 million households this quarter and surpassed 60% penetration of the base.
