As Rupert Murdoch faces accusations of law-breaking and corruption at his British tabloid newspapers, Panorama reveals fresh hacking allegations at the heart of News Corporation's pay-TV empire. The investigation examines the role of former senior police officers in recruiting people to break the law - in order to bring down Murdoch's commercial rival.
Rupert Murdoch's grip on BSkyB could be under threat after an investigation was launched into whether his company is 'fit' to run the TV giant in light of the phone-hacking and bribery scandals engulfing his newspapers.
Media regulator Ofcom has confirmed to MailOnline they will probe whether the media tycoon's News Corp should hold a 39 per cent stake in Britain's biggest broadcaster.
They could decide Mr Murdoch's son James, chairman of BSkyB, should resign and News Corp must sell the majority of its Sky shares if they fail 'fit and proper' tests.
NDS is a global leader in the fight against pay-TV piracy, having repeatedly and successfully assisted law enforcement in that important effort. Like most companies in the conditional access industry - and many law enforcement agencies - NDS uses industry contacts to track and catch both hackers and pirates. This is neither illegal nor unethical. And, to ensure that all activity remains completely within legal bounds, NDS staff and their contacts operate under a clear code of conduct for operating undercover. These allegations were the subject of a long-running court case in the United States. This concluded with NDS being totally vindicated and its accuser having to pay almost $19m in costs.
