Sky news update: Sky news is one of the biggest news channels currently operating within the UK. Its online service was recently named best new website.
Sky runs one of the biggest news channels operating within the UK. There are several ways to watch and catch up on their latest news stories such as; TV, Sky News App (available on most Smartphone’s and tablets) and online. On the 22nd November 2013 their news site won an award at the MetrixLab UK Website of the Year awards. The online website picked up the most prestigious award possible at the ceremony in London; best news and information website.
Winners of awards were voted for by the public, this made the decision more open and created a much fairer playing field for the websites involved. The British public who took part in the voting chose their individual favourite websites from a variety of 20 different categories which includes; sport, leisure and travel. Websites were ranked on multiple aspects of the website these were: design, recommendation likelihood, content and navigation. Overall the Sky News website sustained higher average scores than any other website involved in the competition.
This incredible success was quickly followed by more success for Sky as sky.com picked up the award for the media and entertainment website. The MetrixLab UK Website of the Year awards is currently being regarded as the largest annual online public prize operating within Europe. This name was shown to be true as nearly 100,000 British citizens cast their votes during this year’s competition. The event has been running for 10 years now and this year saw 238 websites nominated for awards.
These wins for Sky are very uplifting after their recent failures. They lost the broadcasting rights for the Champions League from the 2015/2016 football season onwards. This meant share prices fell by 11% removing over a £1 billion of market worth from the company. However the Champions League is only one of a many things Sky offer. The offer all kinds of sports such as: tennis, golf, formula 1 and rugby.
They also offer entertainment packages for all ages and movies. As well they provide broadband and telephony services across the UK and Ireland. Therefore the loss of the Champions League rights is not as damaging as it could have potentially been, however it has shown that Sky’s dominance can be challenged and can be beaten which could in the future cause potential problems for the company.
