There hasnt been much doubt that MTV would reconfirm its carriage agreement with pay-TV giant BSkyB. All of the MTV networks are covered, including the Nickelodeon and Comedy Central brands. What wasnt expected was that Viacom, MTVs owner, would hand over responsibility for ad-sales to Skys media sales arm.

Viacom had previously used its own sales division, Viacom Brand Solutions, to handle its on-air sales efforts. The shift to BSkyB now gives Sky about 17% of the UK television market. MTVs ad-revenues are said to be worth about 375m over a five-year period. A growing ad-market could see this revenue increase nicely.

Mike Darcey, Sky's COO, said the deal would allow the groups to "share in the opportunities that arise from a strengthened ad sales portfolio". Skys greater overall importance in selling air time inevitably gives it a much stronger negotiating position with media buyers.
