AgCom orders RAI to settle encryption row with Sky 

Friday 13 March 2015 | 10:45 CET | News
Italian communications regulator AgCom has ordered public broadcaster RAI to settle its dispute with pay-TV operator Sky Italia within the next 30 days. The regulator told RAI to request a "fair and reasonable" compensation from Sky for broadcasting its TV channels free-to-air to subscribers. Although AgCom refrained from citing any figure, a report in Italia Oggi suggests it could range from EUR 30 million to EUR 70 million and other broadcasters such as Mediaset and La7 could also ask Sky for compensation.
