Thursday 9 March 2017 | 10:52 CET | News
Liberty Global has ruled out working with Amazon, CTO Balan Nair said at the Cable Congress in Brussels. Amazon's video services are available on the cable operator's platforms, such as Horizon and TiVo. Nair said the company was always open to new possibilities, "but if someone is competing with video or other telecom services, it's not worth as much for us".
