AGCM summons Sky Italia, Mediaset over football rights deal

Monday 18 January 2016 | 10:17 CET | News
Italy's anti-trust regulator AGCM has summoned Sky Italia and Mediaset to respond to the findings of its investigation into alleged collusion in the acquisition of TV football rights, reports La Repubblica. The watchdog is investigating possible "sharing agreements" between Sky and Mediaset, as well as the Italian football league and Infront Italy SRL, the agency that managed the auction. The parties have been called to a meeting before a panel on 16 February to account for an exchange of emails shortly before the result of the TV rights auction was announced, said the report.
