Italian watchdog to probe Dazn, Sky football offers

Wednesday 29 August 2018 | 09:49 CET | News
Italian antitrust watchdog AGCM has launched two investigations into the Serie A football offers of pay-TV operator Sky Italia and sport streaming platform DAZN following numerous consumer complaints. The regulator accused Sky of failing to provide adequate information on the limits of its football offer for the 2018-19 season, above all with regard to time slots, the number of games broadcast and penalty-free cancellation clauses. As a result, customers could have been prompted to renew their subscription "in the mistaken belief that the offer had not changed," said the watchdog.
