The British Sky Broadcasting Group has discussed what it calls “good growth” in its third quarter results for 2013 conference call. Chief executive officer and executive director Jeremy Darroch led the discussion following release of the company’s results statement. He looked at the key themes of the figures and highlighted some of the notable points. British Sky Broadcasting Group has delivered another quarter of strong performance, he said. Some 715,000 paid-for subscription products were added over the three months, and “good growth” was seen across the board. This has helped to drive strong revenue growth, which increased by 8%, operating profit, which was up 13%, and profit before tax, which rose by 12.1%. “Our financial performance has actually accelerated as we've moved through the year,” Mr Darroch commented. Over the first nine months, revenue has grown 6%, operating profit 9% and EPS 16%, he continued. “What that really reflects, I think, is strong demand for our products and our continued focus on operational efficiency,” he explained. “Of course, our overall goal is to keep growing the total volume of our business. And I hope you'll agree that this is a strong set of financial results in what remains a challenging consumer environment.” The group’s financial performance comes from consistently good operation delivery and growth in all product lines, highlighting the way it has sold multiple products, transform the scale of the business and opened up new areas of growth. British Sky Broadcasting is no longer a firm that just sells satellite TV, Mr Darroch went on, and is now much more broad, with a home phone service, NOW TV, Sky Extra and fibre optic broadband internet. The quarter saw the group pass the 30-million paid-for subscription product milestone, which is more than double the number from just five years ago. It is now vital that the approach to growth remains focused on overall product sales, as this is paying dividends. As the product range is increased, customers are signing up for more options. The average number of products for customer is now 2.8, compared to 2.6 a year ago. This broad product growth is now seen as the most valuable opportunity and will remain the firm’s focus going forward. Attracting more customers to Sky has been a particular success, with growth in the third quarter in DTH, NOT TV and stand-alone communications. Customers continue to spend more, although churn was up slightly as pressure on household budgets continues and people actively seek out different deals.

    太快送出了orz...另外補充幾句 我以前曾也認為 科學不過就是另一種宗教 只是科學家相信的\"神\"是真理或自然法則 但有次在國外論壇上看到一段論戰 裡面有一個人(後來知道他是nature的編輯)的說法我覺得很有道理: Science is not a religion that wohrsips Truth as its God - Science is a religion that wohrsips Doubt.我想台灣這個社會欠缺的 不是科學知識 而是運用邏輯與科學方法去懷疑 去分析 並尋求合理且可行的公共政策的能力 教育與訓練當然可以增進獲取這能力的機率 但也不是必然的...看看那票甚至是世界級名校博士的達官顯貴就知道了 但話說回來 這群跳樑小丑之所以能用他們那套暢行無阻 自然也是因為台灣大多數選民欠缺這能力的關係

    Last weekend I went off that high dive. That was my first time ever from that high. I thought I&7#;182d never get back to the top. I think that was pretty brave of Jaden.
