BSkyB made a loss in the first half of its financial year after losing money on its investment in ITV.
BSkyB has made a huge loss on its investment in ITV
It lost £112m over the six months to the end of December, including a £343m charge related to its ITV stake.
Last week BSkyB was told that it would have to reduce that holding by more than half to 7.5%.
Meanwhile, BskyB said it signed up 167,000 subscribers in the final three months of 2007, and 260,000 new internet broadband customers.
The broadcaster also reduced the rate at which customers dropped their subscriptions.
The so called "churn rate" fell to 10% over the six month period.
Operating profits fell 25% to £295m in the first half as the company spent more on marketing and programming.
"We have made good progress during the quarter," new chief executive Jeremy Darroch.
"We enter calendar year 2008 in good shape."
