Two industry giants are going to work together – expect great interest from other media.

Here’s the text of the news release which has been sent out today.

Summary

Sky is going to create a user generated content portal for viewers to upload video, including video from mobile phones, powered by Google. (think You Tube)

Sky will offer webmail. (think Gmail, but with a user@sky.com address)

Google will provide the advertising around all of it.
