Bernama – Saturday, June 13

KUALA LUMPUR, June 12 (Bernama) — Astro All Asia Networks Plc posted a higher pre-tax profit of RM69.824 million for its first quarter ended April 30, 2009 as compared with the RM38.692 million it posted previously.

The pay-television operator, which added 82,000 residential customers during the quarter, also saw revenue rise by six percent to RM751.9 million from RM709.86 million amid a steady increase in demand for television services.

Radio revenue was marginally lower than in the same period of the previous year despite considerable pressure on airtime sales from challenging economic conditions, it said in a filing to Bursa Malaysia, here, today.

In India, Sun Direct TV, the joint venture company in which the group has a 20 percent stake, also continued to report strong growth in subscriber numbers with over 3.2 million subscribers activated since its launch in December 2007.
