Sky HD subscription orders reach 90k

Sky_2 Sky's financial results to the end of June 2006 have revealed that orders for its new high-definition service Sky HD have reached 90,000.

Whilst initial service delays due to manufacturing issues and high demand mean that only 36,000 orders have currently been fulfilled, Sky expect to have all current orders installed by this September.

To match this take-up, forecasts predict that 2.73m HD ready TVs will be bought in the UK this year, accounting for around half of all TVs sold.

Sky's total subscriber base rose to 8.2m, which puts it on track to reach 10m by the end of 2010.

Its revenues rose pretty sweetly, except its acquisition of the EasyNet ISP, on which it's pinning much of its new broadband service rollout.
