Murdoch set for Euro Premiere

RUPERT MURDOCH could announce as early as today a deal to buy 25 per cent of Premiere World, the German pay-TV operator owned by Kirch Group. Mr Murdoch, the BSkyB chairman, is in London meeting the satellite broadcaster's board of directors. Last night he hosted his Christmas party attended by Tony Blair and other political and business leaders. BSkyB is expected to pay between pounds 300m and pounds 600m for the stake in Premiere in what would be its first investment on the Continent.
