Sky Broadband Fairy Tales
Sky Broadband deals are being promoted in the UK with a series of television commercials featuring well known fairy tales Aladdin, Little Red Riding Hood, the Princess and the Pea and The Frog Prince. The fairtytales were given a modern twist, to bring to life the brand’s new, confident and irreverent identity in TV, cinema, radio, online, outdoor and national press. The “Broadband Happily Ever After” campaign continues to deliver huge results with 3 out of 4 new customers now taking broadband together with calls in a package alongside Sky TV channels, almost doubling the net broadband additions of the previous year.
