BERLIN —

A wholly owned subsidiary of Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. has taken a majority stake in German pay-TV Sky Deutschland.

The Munich-based channel said in a statement Monday that News Adelaide has increased its holding in Sky Deutschland to 54.5 percent for (EURO)347.4 million ($461.14 million).

Sky Deutschland says News Corp. has also agreed to guarantee a (EURO)300 million bank loan and the channel's license fee payments to the German Football League for the Bundesliga seasons through 2016/2017.

Some 3,363,000 customers paid for Sky Deutschland's subscription service last year.
