During these 12 months, Sky gained 808,000 new customers and sold 3.3 million new products.
Jeremy Darroch, Group Chief Executive at Sky commented with the following about it:
“ With revenue up 7% and profits up 12 %, it’s been another excellent year for Sky. We have broadened our business and expanded into new consumer segments , applying our proven strategy a cross the group.
Sky has said that they continue to sustain strong performance in the Uk and Ireland, where they have managed to gain over £8 billion in revenue.
A lot of these results could be due to the recently released Sky Q TV system, which they say was widely appreciated by customers, with 9 out of 10 of their customers saying that they would recommend it.
