NOW TV: Sky disrupts itself?

20 July 2012

Sky has launched NOW TV, an unbundled internet video service offering non-Sky households pay-as-you-go access to select Sky content, starting with movies, with sports added later in the autumn and TV shows to follow NOW TV addresses the growing opportunity for broadband TV, primarily appealing to the 8 million non-pay-TV households that have broadband – the same target audience as Netflix, LoveFilm, BT Vision and YouView We expect NOW TV to have only incremental impact on Sky’s financials, but it has the potential to put Sky in pole position in the nascent market for over-the-top TV
