Sky On Demand setup (small)

More than 300 million films and TV shows were downloaded from Sky On Demand in the last three months. That’s 63 per cent more than the same period last year.

The telecoms and telly giant's trove of Box Sets garnered more than 100 million downloads during the period, with ‘The Walking Dead’ and ‘Game of Thrones’ among its most popular shows.

More than half a million customers have bought at least one film from the Sky Store since it launched.

Sky recently opened up the online store to non-customers as well. It’s proving to be a popular place – it alone accounted for 30 per cent of UK digital purchases of the blockbuster ‘Gone Girl’.

Sky’s Now TV service also had a strong quarter, with 30 per cent more customers than the same period last year.

“We have delivered an excellent third quarter as customers across the enlarged Sky group respond to the quality and breadth of what we offer,” said Jeremy Darroch, Sky’s group chief executive.

“As these results demonstrate, our teams are working well together right across the new Sky. Five months in, our integration plans are progressing well and we are well positioned for the expanded growth opportunity ahead.”

A new Now TV Box is expected later this year.

Sky has also commissioned a second series of its arctic murder drama ‘Fortitude’, which will air next year.
