DRAFT - Subject to audit and legal opinion
Disclosure
• The changes outlined in this presentation are draft proposals.
• They have not yet been subject to audit and legal opinion, nor have they been approved by the
Board.
• There is therefore the potential for further changes to our disclosure before we report H1 results
on February 4th, 2015.
• Any KPIs or financials are illustrative only.

Introduction
• Sky has created Europe's leading entertainment company after completing the acquisition of Sky
Italia and a majority interest in Sky Deutschland.
• Our expectation is that this will lead to some changes to our external financial reporting.
• Our objective is to better align our external reporting with our strategy, to enable the investment
community to better understand the key drivers and results of our business and to align external
and internal management reporting.
• In order to proactively help investors and analysts, this presentation outlines some of the
potential key changes to our external reporting.

Operating segments
• Historically, the BSkyB Group has disclosed a single reportable segment comprising the whole of the
UK and Ireland business.
• We propose to present three segments for the enlarged Sky Group. This is to reflect the different:
- competitive set in each market
- economic and regulatory environment in each market
- stages of maturity of the businesses
• The three segments are:
- UK and Ireland
- Italy
- Germany and Austria
• The results for Germany may continue to be published additionally by Sky Deutschland for so long as
the business remains listed.

Operating segments
• We will have an eliminations column which will include any inter-segment trading – for example, the sale
of set-top boxes and programming between businesses.
• We will not be presenting a segmental split of assets and liabilities.
– The Sky Group has one Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Statement
• As well as presenting statutory financials in sterling, we may provide narrative commentary using a
“constant currency” method to show the underlying performance of the business.
• As well as presenting statutory financials, we may provide pro-forma financials for the Group to show
the underlying performance of the business.

Operating metrics and disclosure
• Our previous disclosure was a legacy of the period in which we were a standalone DTH business.
• Our focus today is fundamentally on growth based on multiple products and routes to market.
• To reflect the increased breadth of the business and to align the metrics across the Group, we propose to
formally report on four headline non-financial KPIs for each territory:
– Customers
– Products
– Churn
– Local currency ARPU
• These are not exclusive and in addition, we will provide narrative commentary by territory and this will
include more granular information, for example growth of broadband in the UK and ROI
10
DRAFT - Subject to audit and legal opinion
2
Operating metrics and disclosure
• Where applicable, we expect to align calculation methodologies and definitions to ensure consistency
across the Group
– Where we do this, we will provide historic comparatives on a restated basis
• For example, the three Skys currently calculate churn differently:
– UK and ROI use a quarterly annualised method
– Italy use a 52 week rolling method
– Germany report both
• In this case we expect to adopt rolling 52 week for all territories and to provide, if material, comparatives on
each basis.

Changes to how we display our financials: Revenue
• We expect to make small changes to the way we display our revenue.
• The main reason to do this is to reflect the increasing breadth of our business.
• We currently report transactional revenue across different revenue lines in our P&L. We intend to
introduce a new revenue line item, Transactional revenue, which will combine all the transactional
revenue we receive. Examples of this include:
– a customer buying a Sky Store movie
– NOW TV sports day pass (NB that a monthly subscription is reported in Subscription revenue)
• We propose to consolidate the revenue we derive from monetising our channels and programmes across
other platforms (Wholesale, Sky Vision, sublicensing) into a new single Wholesale and syndication line.
• To simplify our income statement we are combining the relatively immaterial amount of revenue that we
receive from Hardware, Installation and Service into the Subscription revenue line.
• These changes are summarised in the reconciliation on slide 15.

Changes to how we display our financials: Costs
• We may also make some small changes to our cost lines.
• We’ll continue to report programming costs for each segment.
• We expect to combine the sub-categories of our other operating costs for statutory purposes within a
single Selling, General and Administration cost line. We’ll provide a split of this by territory and continue
with additional narrative commentary, particularly around marketing costs within SG&A.
• We will continue to report Direct Network costs for our UK and ROI business. However, this line is not
relevant for Germany or Italy due to the nature of their operations. For information, Direct Network costs
include, amongst other things:
– LLU rental
– Broadband and WLR connection costs
– New Line Provision
– Customer migrations
– Content delivery network costs

Alignment of accounting policies
• There are currently some differences in the ways in which each territory recognises revenue and costs.
Differences of accounting policy
• We are reviewing the accounting policies in each
territory to align with the accounting policies of the
Sky Group.
• This will result in the accounting policies of Italy and
Germany being aligned with those of UK and ROI for
the purposes of our Sky Group accounts.
• Generic examples of this could be asset lines and
programming amortisation.
Differences of fact
• Where there are differences of fact and commercial
circumstances, the accounting policies in each
territory will reflect this. For example:
– the UK and ROI treat the accounting for set-top box
costs differently to Germany and Italy. This is because of
differences of fact regarding who owns the set-top box
in each territory and accordingly we do not expect this to
change.

Adjusted profit
• In common with most FTSE companies, we present our financials on an adjusted basis to allow you
to understand the underlying performance of the business.
• We’ll continue to provide statutory financials and provide a reconciliation between statutory and
adjusted.
• This is not a change. For example, following our previous acquisition of O2’s consumer broadband
and fixed-line telephony business in April 2013, we adjusted for the costs of the integration.

Adjusted profit
• The transaction will add new items to our reconciliation from statutory to adjusted measures.
• As communicated as part of the transaction, there will be a number of substantial one-off items
this year including:
–

–
Profit arising on the disposal of part of our investment in ITV
Profit on disposal of our stake in National Geographic
Fees and costs associated with the transaction and financing
One-time costs of achieving synergies (likely to be some this year and more in the following few periods)
• There will also be a number of new, recurring adjusting items including:
– Amortisation of acquired intangible assets (principally the value of customer contracts arising from the
acquisition accounting process), in line with the practice adopted for the acquisition of the O2 broadband
business
– The deferred tax charge (see section 6) that arises in each period as the acquired tax losses in Germany
are utilised. This will align our results more closely to cash tax paid, after taking relief for the losses

Deferred tax
• We expect to be able to utilise Sky Deutschland’s historical losses of €2.6 billion to reduce our
current tax payments.
• The value of these losses will be recognised in full as a deferred tax asset in our opening
acquisition balance sheet.
• Our current estimate is that the deferred tax asset is worth in the region of €700 million.
• The deferred tax asset will be unwound through the income statement as the acquired losses
are utilised. There is no time limit on their utilisation.
• We will exclude this deferred tax charge from our adjusted earnings measures in order to align
our results more closely to cash tax paid after taking relief for the losses.
