sky goVideo technology provider, Elemental, has partnered with Sky to process and deliver its over-the-top TV service, Now TV, and mobile TV service, Sky Go, to customers.

Announcing the partnership yesterday, Elemental said that Sky OTT service infrastructure is deploying Elemental Live as the video processing engine.
