The Week: City news - Sky in talks to buy Digital+

BSkyB is in early talks to buy the £1.97 billion Spanish pay-TV platform Digital+, according to reports.

Grupo Prisa, the Spanish media company, is expected to sell Digital+ this year. It was an acquisition target for Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation, which is a Sky shareholder. However, News Corp's pursuit of the German pay-TV group Premiere has raised questions over the funds available.
