From Checkpoint, 5:41 pm on 23 February 2021

SKY TV is warning it may cost more to watch sport on its platforms, because of a more expensive rugby rights deal.

But the company is promising subscription fees won't change this financial year.

Sky TV has more than trebled its net profit to just under $40 million for the six months to December.

Chief executive Sophie Maloney told Checkpoint executive producer Annabel Reid the company has some big costs in the next half of the year.
