Have added to my holding
I have added to my holding today on the recent weakness. Although I hate to have anything to do with Murdoch I think the Sky proposition is good and getting better.
I don't see why people pay sky money every month, when nextflix+amazonprime are way cheaper. The only problem is some areas have no or slow broadband. If I were SKY I would be worried about millenials esp under 30s who don't care for tv so much and spend more time social media+Playstation+xbox. If I had Sky money I would make my own Video games company like Steam, and a new social media company. But I guess they are only thinking short term by wasting money on Premier league, And news international, selling The Sun which has gone behind the Daily Mail, online and in circulation.

Don't bet against BSkyB's Chief Executive Jeremy Darroch, the Sunday Times's Danny Fortson advised. Darroch is expanding his pay-TV business after agreeing to buy sister companies in Italy and Germany. Shareholders need to consider whether BSkyB is overstretching itself by issuing shares and taking on £5bn of debt to pay for the deal. Targeted cost savings look paltry but the prize is to export BSkyB's ability to sell TV and broadband to Germany and Italy, where takeup is lower than in the UK. If Darroch achieves this, shareholders can do well. Rupert Murdoch controls BSkyB and the Sunday Times.
