Sky To Team Up With Telefonica

Broadcasting giants Sky have announced that they’re planning to enter into the mobile phone services sector in 2016.

“As the UK’s leading brand for home entertainment and communications, Sky has a proven ability to launch new services, at scale. We know our 11.5 million customers trust Sky to offer them the best quality and choice and have an appetite to take more from us.
Through our partnership with Telefonica UK, we can build on our expertise in content, innovation and service to launch a range of exciting new services and exploit the opportunities for growth in the fast-changing mobile sector.”

Telefonica are currently on the verge of selling O2 to mobile network Three’s company Hutchinson. Maybe this is why Telefonica have decided to sell O2, as they will still have Tesco Mobile and Sky’s new network.
