Italy's AGCM agrees not to block DAZN-TIM Serie A streaming

Wednesday 28 July 2021 | 10:47 CET | News
Italy's antitrust and competition authority AGCM said it would not be imposing precautionary measures to restrict the agreement between sports streaming service DAZN and Telecom Italia (TIM) to jointly air the top-tier Serie A football league for the next 3 seasons. The watchdog launched an investigation into the deal at the start of the month, saying it could "lead to significant distortions of competition". However, it said proposals submitted by the TIM and DAZN have served to ease its concerns.
