The change has van Rooyen updating his job title from managing director for sales, marketing and brand.

A Sky spokesman told Marketing that the new role would involve looking at the company's digital media activities as a whole.

It is understood that the update is not a major one, since van Rooyen already oversaw core digital products such as Sky Go and Now TV in his former role.
