Absorbing game

We wake to a certain nervousness around Sky's outlets other than sport. The deal, for 126 live broadcasts of Premier League games for each of the next three seasons, works out at £11m per match. Sky has 15.8 million subscribers in the UK - 11.7m are private homes, and it's estimated that 8m pay for Sky Sports.  The average spend across all subcribers is £564 a year, with domestic customers averaging something over £500.

Staff at Osterley will be keen to understand the balance between "absorbing" cost and growth.
