British Sky Broadcasting Group (commonly known as BSkyB) is a British satellite broadcasting, broadband and telephony services company headquartered in London, with operations in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Formed in 1990 by the equal merger of Sky Television and British Satellite Broadcasting, BSkyB is the largest pay-TV broadcaster in the United Kingdom and Ireland with over 10.6 million customers.
In Sept 2008 BSkyB needed to deliver, efficiently, effectively and on time, Sky Studios. This was a sophisticated new broadcast studio facility with the Technical Fit-out designed in collaboration with Sony.
The Studios, which began broadcasting in July 2011, are set over three floors designed for studio work and post production. It involved complex designs and a sophisticated technical layout, which needed to be fully operational to deliver end-to-end broadcasting within a three year time period.
