BSkyB said profit after tax fell almost 16 percent to £411 million ($ 678 million, 500 million euros) in the final six months of 2013 compared with the equivalent period in 2012. "We are moving through a year of investment in which we are absorbing the one-off step up in Premier League costs," chief executive Jeremy Darroch said in the group's earnings statement. BSkyB dominates the market for screening live Premier League football to homes and pubs across Britain.
