BSkyB insist they are 'fit and proper'

BSkyB have insisted that they are ‘fit and proper’ to hold a broadcast licence as they publish latest financial results.
Media regulator Ofcom are currently looking at whether BSkyB is fit and proper to hold a broadcasting licence following the phone-hacking scandal which engulfed News International last year.

“The company is engaging with Ofcom in this process and continues to believe that it remains a fit and proper licence holder, as demonstrated by its positive contribution to UK audiences, employment and the broader economy, as well as its strong record of regulatory compliance and high standards of governance.”

BSkyB have announced a rise in customer numbers and an increase in profits.
