History Of Sky
The company was formerly known as BSkyB or British Sky Broadcasting, a merger of two companies Sky Television and British Satellite Broadcasting. The merger took place because both of the companies were struggling financially and they both competed against each other for the subscribers. After the merger in the year 1990, Sam Chisholm was appointed as a CEO and was responsible to reorganize the company. At that time the company was losing around £10 million a week. But after making changes the company losses were reduced to £1.5 million in the year 1991. By the year 1992, the company started making profits of £100,000 a week. Then in the year 2007, Rupert Murdoch resigned as a chairman and his son James took over the position.
