Sky is the leading pay-TV service in Germany and Austria with more than 3.5 million subscribers. Since the launch of the Sky brand in July 2009, the Company has significantly expanded the depth and breadth of its program offering, introduced numerous innovations and enhanced its customer service. The results can be seen in the Company’s operational and financial progress, as well as improvements in viewer ratings, value-for-money scores, customer recommendations and high satisfaction levels.
Sky is available via satellite, cable, IPTV, the internet and mobile networks. Technically, Sky reaches almost every household in Germany and over 95 percent of all households in Austria. Viewers in Switzerland can also receive Sky via Teleclub. Compared to the rest of Europe, the pay-TV markets in Germany and Austria are still underpenetrated. The combination of rights renewals and extensions with key programming partners, marketing cooperation agreements with major cable and IPTV network providers, as well as the implementation of the new financing structure at the beginning of 2013, provide Sky with a solid long-term perspective and enhanced opportunities for growth and innovation.
“Customers deserve better” was the basic principle that was laid down when the Company was re-launched and re-branded as Sky in July 2009. This statement is driven by the conviction that customers throughout Germany and Austria deserve better television entertainment, better technology and innovation, and better service. To accomplish this, Sky’s strategic focus is on high-quality exclusive programming, cutting-edge innovations and outstanding customer service.
