Sky news update: BT and BSkyB have ended a three year debate about getting Sky Movies for BT TV customers with a positive deal for a multi-year agreement. “The multi-year agreement will enable BT TV customers to add Sky Movies to their service package from October 26. Amongst the premieres offered on the service this month are titles such as Gangster Squad and Les Miserables. The deal covers 11 Sky Movies channels and will be offered to BT customers with a YouView set-top box or a Vision+ box. Financial terms were not disclosed and details of the monthly charge viewers will face have yet to be announced. During the spat, BT complained to regulator Ofcom about Sky’s alleged dominance in the pay-TV movie market, only for the Competition Commission to rule last year that it did not stifle competition. BT has been aggressively building up its TV business and has spent £1billion on its sports channels, including deals to sign up presenters Clare Balding and Jake Humphrey and show Premier League football. Alex Green, director of BT TV, said: ‘We believe this gives a tremendous boost to our BT TV film offering.’ Rob Webster, director of Sky’s commercial group, said: ‘In helping even more UK homes to enjoy Sky Movies, this agreement also supports our wholesale content business.’ Ofcom is investigating a separate complaint by BT about Sky’s alleged refusal to share its” While the two television firms are spending a vast amount of time at the moment battling it out for domination on the sports coverage market, this agreement has merged the two companies so that customers who buy into BT TV are now able to receive the Sky Movies service at an additional cost. This deal has already been reached between Sky and companies such as Virgin Media and Freeview so it is not unheard of but with the two companies fighting over sports, Premier League coverage in particular, it has taken nearly three years to reach the agreement. Customers will now be given the opportunity to watch all the latest movies from the comfort of their own home without having to subscribe to Sky television which can be expensive. The services offered by Sky are unparalleled and there are some good deals out there but customers have been known to describe Sky of being on the more expensive side of television entertainment and therefore this can put people off wanting to subscribe on a long term basis.
