BSkyB has claimed that it contributes £5.4bn to the UK's GDP, supports 120,000 jobs and generates £2.3bn in tax contributions.

It is the first time that BSkyB has commissioned an independent report into its economic impact, with the publication timed to coincide with Ofcom's investigation into whether the company is a "fit and proper" owner of a broadcasting licence.
