Sky to launch mobile service

21 October 2014

sky Sky have had a nice chat with a number of 3G and 4G operators as they weigh-up whether or not to launch their own mobile services in the United Kingdom.

Sky has been making eyes at Vodafone, EE and O2 about a potential deal, and presumably, will be going with the most lucrative offer, rather than the one that will serve their customers the best. Have you ever tried to watch satellite television when the weather is a bit lousy?

Instead of your TV disrupted by a threat of rain, it'll you be you screaming down the phone: "HELLO? CAN YOU HEAR ME? HELLO? HEL- MUM? HELLO? CAN Y- OH FORGET IT."

Anyway, with a number of Sky's competitors offering mobile and broadband packages, it looks like they'll be going ahead with it, offering mobile services under their own brand.

Sky's Chief Executive Officer Jeremy Darroch said the company always "remains open to opportunities".

He said the mobile market is something that Sky "keeps a close eye on", adding: "If we thought there was strong customer demand, then we can be in a good place to respond. We've got a very significant customer base already that we know we can cross-sell into very successfully."

Does anyone want to make a joke about Murdoch and phone-tapping so we don't have to?

    I'm surprised Sky haven't just bought out one of the Mobile Phone companies....
