Sky Strengthens News Channel Line-Up

SKY Television today announced that it will expand its stable of news channels with the launch of Fox News Channel on the 1st December 2006. Fox News Channel will be available to SKY subscribers as part of the SKY Digital Start Up Package on Channel 57.

Fox News Channel is the highest rated news channel in the United States and the fastest growing news channel in the world. The channel will offer New Zealand viewers live news from the United States and around the world, 24 hours a day. Feature prime time programming includes The Fox Report, The O'Reilly Factor, and On The Record with Greta Van Susteren.

John Fellet, SKY Television CEO, says, "Fox News Channel will be a worthy addition to SKY’s news and factual channel line-up which currently includes news channel services BBC World, CNN, and SKY News Australia New Zealand. The new channel illustrates the broad range of programming alternatives we continue to deliver to our subscribers.”
