Its board approved the separation into two firms, which will both be headed by the current chairman and chief executive Rupert Murdoch.

The newly renamed 21st Century Fox will include the US news channel Fox News and the 20th Century Fox film studio. Its services in Europe and Asia include Sky Deutschland, Sky Italia and stakes in BSkyB and Tata Sky.
