Sky’s pricing system uses the Rateable Value (RV) of your premises as the basis for calculating your Sky subscription price. However, Sky recognise that as the licensed trade has evolved, a premises’ Rateable Value on its own does not always reflect the different business models an outlet can adopt. Their pricing system takes into account other factors that influence your business, including whether or not you have an outdoor sports area or if you serve food in your premises.
