Sky TV has confirmed the closure of its Dunedin office, adding to the city’s woes yesterday after Cadbury announced 362  redundancies.

It was understood, but not confirmed, that as many as  10 jobs could be affected at Sky’s  Portsmouth Dr premises,  the company’s  Otago and Southland accounts and technical support office.

Sky’s director of communications, Kirsty Way, was contacted for comment and said  the Dunedin office was being closed in April.

She said more details would be made available today. The branch manager of the Dunedin office was contacted but responded she was unable to comment. Sources said some Sky subscribers were told this week of the pending changes when making inquiries to the Dunedin office. 

Comments

This announcement must surely come as no surprise to anyone.
Sky are probably bleeding customers across the country at a huge rate in the face of competition from much cheaper streaming services. They are totally over charging for their product.
This decision is clearly an attempt to reduce costs as their market share dwindles.
