SYDNEY: Australian pay-TV operator Foxtel has posted pre-tax, full year profits of A$4 million ($3m; €2.3m; £1.6m), a turnaround from last year's A$160m loss and its first profit in a decade.
The business, owned by Australian telco Telstra, News Corporation and Publishing & Broadcasting, saw subscriber numbers jump 10% to 1.13m over the twelve months to June 30, with the majority signing-up for the most expensive package.
Opines Foxtel ceo Kim Williams: "I feel confident that our settings are right and we will move from an inaugural profit to a much more substantial one in the current year."
