    new advert with David Beckham to advertise their Sports channels which shows him at home and on the move in studios and a cafe and being able to watch Sky Sports on the go wherever he is Filed under Home Broadband News Offers Tags BT Broadband BT Broadband free BT Sport BT Sport Free BT Sport Author Mark 11 56 am Comments 0 June 18 2013 Sky offer free broadband for Sky Sports customers Sky have gone back on the offensive to lure broadband customers to them as they go in a toe to toe battle with rival broadband provider BT by offering 12 months free broadband for Sky Sports subscribers BT Broadband started this latest battle by offering BT Broadband customers free viewing of it s new BT Sport TV channels that will have 38 live Premier League games available that won t be available on Sky Sky have now countered this offer and switched it round a bit and are offering customers who pay for a Sky Sports TV package free Sky Broadband Unlimited for a year or 6 months free superfast Sky Fibre broadband which usually costs 20 per month 14 50 monthly line rental will still be charged Those who take Sky Sports TV package will receive Sky Sports 1 2 Sky Sports News and Sky Sports F1 The good news for existing Sky Sports customers is that the deal is available for both new and existing Sky Sports customers Sky are obviously trying very hard to make sure that few of their current broadband subscriber base make the switch to BT Broadband and that also they can maybe try and lure some of BT s customers over to the Sky side Filed under Home Broadband Tags Free Sky Broadband Free Sky Broadband with Sky Sports Sky Broadband Sky Sports Author Mark 3 24 pm Comments 0 May 21 2013 Sky offer O2 Broadband customers free Sky TV and free broadband Sky are offering existing O2 Broadband customers free Sky TV and free broadband for a year if they switch over to Sky broadband by the end of June At the start of March it was announced that Sky would be buying O2 Home broadband BE Broadband customers from parent company Telefonica in a deal worth 180 million A combination of factors may have resulted in Sky coming along with this very enticing offer one being that of the 500 000 home broadband customers that were with O2 BE 40 000 are believed to have ended their contracts with the O2 or BE according to results on Telefonicas latest quarter report and Sky are keen to keep the rest The other reason could well be because of BT s latest offer of offering BT Broadband customers free access to BT Sports channels which will include 38 free Premier League games for 12 months Sky won t want any more O2 broadband customers jumping ship and going to BT rather than staying for the migration over to Sky The offer existing O2 Broadband customers are to receive we believe is the Entertainment Extra service which comes with 48 HD channels plus a broadband unlimited package with both of these being free for 12 months There will still be a monthly line rental of 14 50 per month or 119 40 if paid upfront which is an extra saving of 50 In total the offer is set to save customers 468 based on it s current charge of 39 per month excluding the line rental And customers who do sign up for it will then have to decide after 12 months if they wish to stay on the package or move to another broadband provider It is thought that existing O2 Broadband customers will receive a mail shot in the most with a unique reference number to call up with to claim the offer and so it will be worth keeping an eye out for for any existing O2 Broadband customer who fancies taking up the offer Filed under Home Broadband Tags O2 Broadband Sky Broadband Sky buy O2 broadband Sky offer O2 Broadband customers free Sky TV and free broadband Author Mark 10 55 am Comments 0 March 4 2013 Sky to buy up O2 BE Broadband customers Sky have agreed a deal with the owners of 02 BE Broadband to buy up their UK broadband and fixed line business in a deal worth up to 200 million Spain s Telefonica who are the current owners of O2 BE Broadband brands will initially receive 180 million for the new broadband customers and a further 20 million once there has been a successful migration of customers from O2 Broadband BE Broadband to Sky Broadband This latest acquisition providing it receives approval from the regulatory body will push Sky Broadband to be the 2nd largest UK ISP ahead of Virgin Media and behind BT It is estimated that Sky broadband will boost their broadband subscriber numbers by around 500 000 and take it s broadband customer base to around 4 7 million Virgin Media have around 4 3 million and BT leading the way with 6 5 million broadband customers Sky s Chief Executive Jeremy Darroch said Sky has been the UK s fastest growing broadband and telephony provider since we entered the market six years ago From a standing start in 2006 we have added more than 4 2 million broadband customers The acquisition of Telefónica UK s consumer broadband and fixed line telephony business will help us accelerate this growth Not only will BSkyB benefit of the extra broadband customers but they will also have a new large group of customers to target with their triple or quadruple play
