Anatel to decide on AT&T-DirecTV merger this week

Wednesday 17 September 2014 | 14:45 CET | News
AT&T's proposed acquisition of DirecTV, the parent company of Sky Brasil, was approved by the Administrative Council for Economic Defense (Cade) in July, and telecom regulator Anatel should give the green light "in a few days", reports Teletime. The information came from the superintendent of competition of Anatel, Carlos Manuel Baigorri, who added that the issue is on the agenda for the 18 September board meeting. He believes that there will be no regulatory problems in Brazil, but the major problem will be in the US.
