lead to the creation of over 2,000 new jobs and generate an additional
£3 billion of production investment in UK creative sector in the first
five years alone.
Our technology allows customers to watch what they want, when they
want, how they want, and as we connect millions of families to content

why we offer services like Sky Broadband Buddy and the Sky Kids app. And
our online streaming service, NOW TV, brings viewers all the enjoyment
of Sky with the flexibility of a contract-free service.
We also believe that a company of our scale has a responsibility that
goes beyond our business, and into the community. We’re committed to

decades before we have to – and we’re an inclusive employer recognised
