Sky broadband teams up with Google
The two media giants Sky and Google have teamed up to provide various Google services on Sky’s recently launched UK broadband service.
Part of the deal will allow users to edit, upload and share their own video content, with the ability to send and receive video from a mobile phone.
Customers will also have access to a Sky-branded version of Google Mail, going under the @sky.com domain name.
Google will also be offering search, advertising and communications services, possibly including VoIP, though more specific details aren’t public yet. The communications platform will roll out from Spring next year.
