Sky, the Comcast-owned European pay-television broadcaster, saw its second-quarter revenues drop by 13.8 per cent year-on-year to $4.5bn (€4.4bn), although its Ebitda (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) increased by 54.1 per cent to $863m.

Excluding the impact of currency, revenue decreased by 3.5 per cent compared to the prior year period, which Comcast said was a result of lower direct-to-consumer revenue, content revenue and advertising revenue.
