Sky Network Television has lifted its half year profit on the back of increased demand for its MySky television service and stronger advertising sales.
The pay television operator made $60 million in the six months to December, an increase of 19% on the same period a year ago.
Revenue rose 8% to $398 million, with the number of subscribers moving to the premium MySky service increasing by 60% to just over 230,000.
Advertising revenue increased 26%.
Sky Network Television chief executive John Fellet says MySky now represents almost 30% of the company's satellite subscribers.
The company will pay an interim dividend of 8 cents per share.
