    I'm no expert, but as a quick google search says otherwise - some examples (An Idiot Abroad & Moaning of Life) 4 independent production companies - distributed by the BBC.
    The Office and The IT Crowd and Bo Selecta - Roughcut TV - independent company - produces for BBC, ITV, et al
    Stella - Tidy Productions (Ruth Jones) - BBC/Sky

    Its good for the indies, all Sky do is buy in very well...

    Edit - ITV have 13 production studios with LOTS of programs

    From: BBC News - Can Sky bounce back from BT defeat?
    the thrust of all recent investment at BSkyB under Jeremy Darroch is to make its television service about much more than sport.Or to put it another way, Darroch believes there are more rewarding ways for his company to deploy 300m a year of cash.
    So for example BSkyB is already spending more than 500m a year on creating what it calls "original British programmes" - series such as the Tunnel, Dracula and Strike Back - with the published aim of increasing that to 600m by 2015.

    I hadn't realised Eurosport had lost the rights too! Typical, I get to the point in my life where I can afford Sky Sports and now hardly anything I watch is on it! The possibility of cancelling the Sports and Sky TV is now a very real prospect for me, however this is exactly what BT want me to think so on that basis I won't!

    You definitely should not set up a standing order to hand your salary over to me every month. Repeat: definitely don't do that.
