The Sky Store saw a 77 per cent revenue increase compared to last year, and it's partly down to erotic thriller 'Fifty Shades of Grey'.

Sky sold more copies of 'Grey' than any other digital retailer. But its success wasn't all down to this one film, of course.

Sky's TV service also saw a spike thanks to series five of 'Game of Thrones', the finale of which was watched by a record audience of 3.1 million people in the UK and Ireland.

Seasons one to four also notched up 23 million downloads through Sky Box Sets.

Sky now has more than 12 million customers in the UK and Ireland.

It also claims to be Europe's biggest mobile TV provider, thank to more than 6 million households being registered for Sky Go, its on-the-go service.

Operating profit was up 18 per over the year. It also added almost a million customers over the last 12 months.

Sky should release a new Now TV Box in the near future. It's also rumoured to be working on a 4K set-top box to replace Sky+ HD.
