Tom Watson comments on Comcast bid for Sky

Tom Watson, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, commenting on Comcast’s bid for Sky, said:

“The UK’s media plurality and Sky’s high broadcasting standards are at stake in this bidding process. All bids including this new one from Comcast must be very carefully scrutinised.

“Comcast must demonstrate its commitment to plurality by guaranteeing a properly funded Sky News for at least a decade as a key condition of the sale.”
