Sky added 134,000 customers in the last three months for its TV and broadband business, the company reported in its unaudited results. That's up 7 per cent on the same time last year.

In the last 12 months, an extra 2.3m Sky customers connected their Sky+ HD boxes to the internet. That brings the total number of Sky customers online to 9.6 million.

Revenues for Sky Store are up 50 per cent year on year. Over a million customers have used the Buy & Keep service, which sees Sky sending you a DVD copy of the digital film you bought.

Earlier this year, Sky Store rolled out to non-Sky TV platforms including Roku and YouView.

Sky Atlantic also performed well, racking up 70 per cent more views in the UK and Ireland than a year ago.

"We have made a strong start to the year with customers responding well to the quality and breadth of our content, products and services," said Jeremy Darroch, Sky's group chief executive.

"As we continue to place customers right at the heart of our business, we are focussed on offering the very best content at the same time as anticipating customers' evolving needs, delivering the programmes that they love across multiple platforms and devices."
