Hater: Sky stops broadcasting Fox News in UK

By Bollywood.com News Network

Sky is to stop broadcasting Fox News in the UK.
 
21st Century Fox, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch, said the channel was being withdrawn as it was not commercially viable.
 
Sky stopped broadcasting the US television network in the UK from 4pm on Tuesday.
 
In May, a woman who alleged that she had been sexually harassed at Fox News asked UK media regulators to block 21st Century Fox's planned purchase of Sky.
 
The company source said complaints against Fox News in relation to the takeover bid were not the reason for the TV network being dropped.
 
Figures from the Broadcaster's Audience Research Board (Barb) suggest that Fox News' average UK daily viewing figures were nearly 60,000 per day this year.
 
In December, 21st Century Fox offered £11.7bn for the 61% stake in Sky it does not already own.
 
Critics of the merger, which gives 21st Century Fox access to Sky's 22 million customers in Europe, say Rupert Murdoch will have too much control of the UK media.
