Murdoch: News Corp committed to Sky Deutschland

News Corp is committed to the long-term future of pay-TV operator Sky Deutschland, according to News Corp Europe and Asia chief executive James Murdoch.

Murdoch told German news magazine Der Spiegel last week that the company knew the German pay-TV market would be difficult and said that Sky Deutschland had a long way to go. However, he said that the company was committed to the German market and would succeed, as it had in the UK and Italy.
