BSkyB gives £1bn back to shareholders

Satellite broadcaster BSkyB is giving £1bn back to shareholders angered by a fall in share prices during the row over a News Corporation bid.

But shares rose on Friday after the company announced a big rise in operating profits, and 426,000 new customers over the past year.

On Thursday BSkyB's board voted unanimously to keep James Murdoch as chairman, despite the phone-hacking scandal at News International, another News Corporation company.
