The agreement includes financial and other terms, but neither BSkyB nor Microsoft will disclose the details as the agreement is confidential. A Microsoft spokesperson confirmed the name change in a statement to The Verge. "We're glad to have resolution of this naming dispute, and will continue to deliver the great service our hundreds of millions of customers expect, providing the best way to always have your files with you."

The name change follows a similar European legal dispute where Microsoft agreed to stop using the term "Metro" for its Windows 8 user interface and applications. Although the case never made it to court, German company Metro AG took issue with Microsoft's use of the word Metro throughout its marketing and branding. BSkyB's complaint centers around the Sky services it provides primarily in the UK, with channels like Sky One, Sky Sports, and Sky Movies.
