The satellite television provider, who also announced a customer rise of 78,000 to 10.5m, said that they are working closely with regulator Ofcom to assess their own suitability.
Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation owns a 39% stake in BSkyB, and yesterday he sent an email to staff. He wrote that the business will be “better and stronger” in the wake of the phone hacking scandal, which engulfed the News of the World and other Murdoch-owned papers.
Yesterday, the Commons media committee, charged with looking into accusations of malpractice at the News of the World, concluded that Mr Murdoch was not a “fit person” to run an international business. However, it was a conclusion that split the committee: six backed the ruling, while four Conservative MPs rejected the conclusion.
Mr Murdoch added that the committee’s findings were “hard to read”, but that News Corps had strived hard to make amends and put things right.
In a statement, BSkyB said they were providing a "positive contribution to UK audiences, employment and the broader economy,” and that they had a “strong record of regulatory compliance and high standards of governance".
Sky added that they had performed a thorough investigation into editorial practices and "found no evidence of impropriety or cause for concern".They also added that two cases referred to the head of Sky News, John Ryley, at the Leveson enquiry where journalised had hacked emails of those accused of criminal activity, had been justified as being in the public interest.
