The publishing company, which is majority owned by Australia's News Corporation, says it has bought a further 2.9% of Sky.
Purchases were made at an average price of $3.758 and take INL's holding in Sky to 49.96%.
INL says the purchase has restored its stake to just above the level held before a share placement last year, when Sky issued 20 million shares at $3.99 to New Zealand and Australian institutional investors to raise capital.
The $80 million raised in that placement has been allocated for financing infrastructure for digital and interactive services.
