IFT confirms annulment of Televisa dominant player decision

Monday 26 March 2018 | 09:23 CET | News
Mexican broadcaster Grupo Televisa announced that the country's telecommunications regulator IFT has annulled its 2017 decision that the company had substantial power in the pay-TV market, potentially resulting in tougher measures. The confirmation comes after the Mexican Supreme Court last month ruled that the broadcaster does not have "substantial power" in the pay-TV market and ordered the IFT to vacate its decision and cancel the procedure requiring Televisa to take steps to increase competition.
