NEWS CORP. PAY-PER-VIEW IN AUSTRALIA

     "Despite recently casting doubt on the economic viability"
of Australia's pay TV market, Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. plans
to join government-owned Telstra Corp in a $226.4M shared
investment.  The two companies plan to develop programming,
including sports and news, as well as ethnic and children's
channels and "some limited interactive services" such as home
shopping via cable in '95 (Witcher and Brindal, WALL STREET
JOURNAL, 11/14).
