Fox, which now owns 39.1% of Sky, is trying to buy full control of the business in a deal that would value it at £18.5bn.
The results were announced against the backdrop of a bid from Rupert Murdoch's Twenty-First Century Fox to buy the remaining 61% of Sky it does not already own.
Mr Murdoch won 51% of votes cast by independent shareholders at the annual general meeting - up from 49% previous year.
Last year, Sky's board tapped Murdoch to become its chairman.
In response to the question about the Fox News scandal, Darroch said the "whole board are incredibly supportive and behind Sky" and that it wanted to make a "broader contribution" to society.

A United Kingdom investigation into a planned takeover of TV giant Sky by Rupert Murdoch's 21st Century Fox will assess the tycoon's influence on the country's political landscape, regulators said Tuesday.
The committee includes Mr Gilbert, Jeremy Darroch, Sky's chief executive and Andrew Griffith, Sky's chief operating officer.
The British government referred Fox's $15 billion (11.38 billion pounds) bid for a detailed investigation by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) last month to assess the Murdoch family's commitment to British broadcasting standards and its influence in the media.
He told shareholders he was "pretty confident" that this would not have an effect on the CMA's investigation.
Jeremy Darroch, Group Chief Executive, said that the good revenue growth and excellent profit growth was achieved against the backdrop of pressure on consumer spending and lower spend on United Kingdom television advertising. The pay package handed to Sky's chief executive, Jeremy Darroch, quadrupled to more than £16m in the year to the end of June, despite a hefty fall in annual profits at the broadcaster's United Kingdom and Ireland business.
He pointed out that in addition to Sky's existing markets - the UK, Ireland, Germany, Austria and Italy - the company had just launched consumer streaming services in Spain and Switzerland.
It reported that the first series of home-grown drama Riviera achieved 20 million downloads, becoming its highest ever rated Original commission and Game of Thrones became the most watched series ever on Sky.
Shares of Sky, which are valued at 1075p under 21st Century Fox's takeover bid, closed 13p higher at 926.5p.
