BSkyB broadband to partner Google

Satellite television company BSkyB has said it will work with internet search giant Google in order to develop its broadband services and products.

BSkyB, which offers a free broadband internet service to customers, said it would focus on three areas: search and adverts, videos and communications.

The firm are the latest to join forces and try to meet consumer calls for on-demand media and internet products.

Earlier this week, UK phone firm BT launched its broadband TV service.

Under the plans, BSkyB will launch a user-generated video service that will run off Google's video content tools. Google recently bought the market leader in user-generated videos YouTube for $1.65bn.
