In case you’re wondering, it was called Satellite Television Ltd when it was founded in November 1980, but Rupert Murdoch’s News International bought a 65% stake in the company on 27 June 1983 and it was renamed Sky Television on 16th January 1984 – yes, this day, 35 years ago.
"Hello, all our new viewers in Swindon!" It's 35 years today since Sky's UK launch, by Kate Bush for some reason. https://t.co/uzz7TC3LuL
