Com Hem calls carriage talks with TV4 unsuccessful, appeals to Telia CEO to stop imminent switch-off

Update: 10 December 2019 | 14:56 CET
Tele2 division Com Hem said it is urging Telia CEO Christian Luiga to make a last-ditch effort at serious negotiations over carriage of Bonnier Broadcasting's TV4 channels. It said talks in the morning of 10 December found that the offer to extend provision until after Christmas did not cover rights for Com Hem customers to watch TV4 on their own choice of screen. Com Hem is poised to switch off Telia's channels at midnight.
