Pay-TV group Foxtel has responded to the coronavirus-induced downturn in advertising revenue by retrenching 200 employees. CEO Patrick Delany has told staff that the pandemic has forced the company to accelerate a "transformation" of its business due to digital disruption. A further 140 employees who work in its sports production division have been stood down until the end of June; Delaney notes that it is uncertain as to when live sporting events will resume. He adds that Foxtel is not eligible for the federal government’s JobKeeper wage subsidy scheme at present.
