      What do Google do for Sky?

      Just got Sky Broadband's T&Cs emailed to me and I was wondering what service do Google provide to Sky?

      They are listed in the privacy bit:
      Sky Group Companies include:
      (i)
      Sky Subscribers Services Limited;
      (ii)
      British Sky Broadcasting Limited;
      (iii)
      Easynet Telecommunications Limited; and
      (iv)
      Sky In-Home Service Limited.
      Sky’s agents include:
      (i)
      Google Inc.; and
      (ii)
      Google Ireland Limited.
      So Sky can pass our info to Google, but why for what use?

      Soon to be email, I believe, unless anyone else knows anything?

      Sure it was email though - to improve the current Sky web email.

      Interesting ... I use gMail, I hope they offer a branded version of gMail - so sky's logo and domain but with the complete gMail software.

      I know Google offer that to webmasters, its called Google Apps, I've signed my domain name up ... so if Sky did that, they'd be my favourite mail service and I haven't even signed up yet!

      Just so you know, anyone with a domain can have gmail re-branded.

      The Sky Email service will be transferred to Google, so it will then work.

      afaik You will get 10gb of storage space as well.

      That will be good, I like gMail service, but having an official ISP domain address is always helpful ...

      You could also do what I do and get yourself your own domain so you can have an address for every site you use if you want.

      You will still have your @sky.com email address.
