I assume the service barely profits from its customers, considering you can't buy films in HD, the quality of the films are just appaling and they have no relationship with On Demand what so ever! If anything, they should just bring back Sky Cinema Box Office


From Sky's latest results:-

Built our transactional business to a 30% share of the UK digital market

18% increase in revenue from transactional business driven by launch of box sets within Sky Store Buy &
Keep

Record weekly revenue generated by Sky Store over Christmas, totalling £4 million; Sky Store regularly taking more than 50% share of digital sales for new movie release titles

Seems Sky Store is doing better than I originally thought but the idea of having a Sky Cinema Box Office, for me anyway, just makes more sense.

I still don't see why Sky Store isn't yet sporting the new logo properly. I saw a Sky Store advert a few days ago using the old logo but the ad had a new "Sky Customers - More info on Sky Store" banner (Like Sky Cinema and Sky Sports) and it had the new Sky Store logo. Talk about a lack of effort!

For SD Sky boxes though - even though the great majority of Sky subscribers have a Sky+HD box.

There can't be that many SD boxes to even justify the continuation of the Box Office channels - it was at a point where the cost to run all of those PPV channels was more than the revenue it made - which has fell for a while.

Viewership had declined as Sky began to push the Sky Store service - which is more widely accessible and is more likely to bring in a revenue stream for Sky.
