Malaysia's Astro to invest $166 mn in Sun TV for 20% stake

The Economic Times reports that Malaysian direct-to-home (DTH) service provider Astro will invest $166 mn (€124.1 mn) for a 20% stake in Sun Direct TV, promoted by the Sun TV Network, one of India's largest television station operators. The new venture aims to provide direct-to-home satellite TV services in India. It expects the new company to incur losses for the first five years, but aims to capitalize on India's satellite TV market which is expected to add another 150 mn households in the next decade.
