Monday 3 December 2018 | 09:26 CET | News
Italian regulator Agcom has added pay-TV provider Sky Italia to the country's official register of communications operators (RoC) ahead of its rollout of a fixed line telecommunications service in mid-2019, reports La Repubblica. Sky has been authorised to offer an internet connection and a fixed line service as a "provider of electronic communications services", said the report, adding that the company is likely to launch a package including broadband plus video content such as football and TV series in a single subscription as a complement to its satellite offer.
