Sky can trace its origins back to 1989, when Sky Television Plc and British Satellite Broadcasting made their film channels encrypted, meaning that viewers needed a box and a subscription to view them. The company, BSkyB was officially formed in 1990 and is now the largest digital subscription company in the world. In 2014, the company acquired Sky Italia and changed the name from BSkyB to Sky Plc. Sky is the largest pay-TV broadcaster in the United Kingdom with around 11 million customers. The current company slogan is ‘Believe in Better’. Whilst the corporate headquarters are based in Isleworth, but there is a customer service centre in West Lothian which handles the majority of calls and complaints from customers.
