“It’s great that Sky Sport in New Zealand will be screening Manchester United football games. Manchester United is one of the most recognised sports teams in the world and Kiwis love their football,” said Richard Last, Sky’s director of sport.
Sky's principal business activity is the distribution of both local and international programme content to its subscriber base, predominantly through a digital satellite network. It currently has over 846,000 subscribers taking up 49.8% of New Zealand’s paid TV audience. At the end of June 2013 it reported revenue of NZ$ 843 million.
