Subscribers to UK Online's broadband services could soon find themselves transferred to Sky's packages, according to new reports.

The Register has revealed that Sky is thinking about the future of UK Online, which was acquired through its purchase of Easynet.

While an announcement has not been made on the issue, it is believed that a key option is to move UK Online subscribers across to Sky's own broadband packages and close the body.

Talking to the website, Sky said: "We're currently reviewing how to support UK Online customers following the announcement about the proposed sale of Easynet.

"No decisions have been taken at this time and we'll let customers know directly if and when there are any changes planned."

Earlier this year, Sky confirmed it had reached an agreement over the proposed sale of Easynet Global Services to UK private equity company LDC.

LDC will pay £100 million to Sky on completion of the transaction.
