BSkyB Expanding Overseas
  LONDON, England, 96/08/22 (TS) -- Rupert Murdoch's British Sky
Broadcasting is expanding overseas. Sources tell TELE-satellit that Sky
Sports is set to expand to India and some areas of Asia. Apparently,
advertisments for the channel are already being seen in India.

  Chief executive Sam Chisholm told reporters on Tuesday that the pay TV
company will likely take a stake in Germany's Premiere movie channel. The
company already holds a 49% stake in new digital TV service DF-1 in Germany
with Kirch, a 25% shareholder in Premiere.
