Opening the new Foxtel television centre in Sydney yesterday, Mr Howard said Foxtel’s owners — News Corporation, Publishing and Broadcasting Ltd and Telstra — had made an important investment.
“I do want to thank and compliment the three partners in Foxtel — News Limited, PBL and Telstra — on their extraordinary financial commitment,” Mr Howard said at the new Foxtel studios at North Ryde.
“This facility could not be the state of the art that it is — it could not be the wonderful demonstration of the commitment to the future without the hundreds of millions of dollars having been invested in the future of pay-TV and digital by the three partners.”
Foxtel chief executive Kim Williams said that an accumulative $1.7 billion commitment from the three partner owners led to Foxtel reporting an operating profit this year.
Mr Howard said this move “above the critical line” was a vindication of their contribution to the future.
“Most importantly of all to me, (Foxtel) has made a huge investment in the communications future of this country,” he said.
Foxtel said the centre was part of its $600 million investment.
