Sky Italia cleared in sports rights investigation

Friday 10 May 2013 | 10:47 CET | News
The Italian competition regulator has found no evidence of Sky Italia abusing its dominant position in the acquisition of TV rights for the UEFA Champions League in 2012-2015 and showing the 2010 and 2014 World Cups. The regulator thus closed the investigation initiated against the Italian pay-TV operator in November 2010 on the TV rights for the World Cup and extended in July 2011 to the acquisition of TV rights for the Champions League. The investigation was prompted by a complaint from broadcaster Mediaset.
