British Sky Broadcasting Group Plc , which rejected a bid by Rupert Murdoch ’s News Corp. for full ownership in June, said fiscal third-quarter operating profit rose 5.2 percent as the pay-TV company added more clients.
British Sky Broadcasting Plc, the U.K.’s biggest pay-television provider, said high-definition subscriber additions increased 76 percent in the last quarter after it cut installation prices.
British Sky Broadcasting Plc may have moved closer to a year-end target of 10 million subscribers last quarter, setting the company up for a strategy shift to sell more products to existing customers.
"News Corp. would like to get this thing in the bag as quickly as possible."
