      One million customers choose Sky Broadband

      PRESS RELEASE

      29 October 2007

      One million customers choose Sky Broadband

      Sky today announces that Sky Broadband has passed the one million customer mark.
      The milestone was achieved less than 14 months after the first Sky Broadband
      customer was connected - more quickly than any other UK broadband provider.

      Sky entered the fast-growing broadband marketplace with a pledge to bring
      customers outstanding value and a flexible range of high quality products. Sky
      was the first company to give a free wireless router, 12 months' free McAfee
      security and the option of professional home installation to all customers
      across all products.

      Sky TV customers can choose from a range of broadband options including Sky
      Broadband Base, with no monthly subscription fee and download speeds of up to
      2Mb, and Sky Broadband Max, offering a super-fast connection of up to 16Mb for
      just 10 a month.

      The strength of the customer response to the launch of Sky Broadband has made
      Sky the UK's fastest growing broadband provider*. Its rate of growth underlines
      Sky's transformation from a leading company in the 7 billion television
      marketplace to a challenger in the broader 25 billion marketplace for
      entertainment and communications.

      As well as deepening relationships with existing customers, new products such as
      broadband and telephony are bringing wider benefits and attracting new customers
      to the company. Around 30% of customers who have joined Sky Broadband so far are
      new Sky TV customers, while around 70% of Sky Broadband customers are taking a
      paid-for option.

      James Murdoch, Sky's Chief Executive, said:

      "Sky entered the broadband marketplace because we saw an opportunity to
      challenge the established players and give customers something better. Our aim
      is to meet the hunger for better quality, better service and better value, so to
      be the choice of one million customers after just 14 months is a real
      achievement."

      End

      *Based on figures for the twelve months to June 2007, the most recent period for
      which comparable industry figures are available.
