Sky Italia fined EUR 2.4 mln for football package breach

Monday 27 May 2019 | 13:56 CET | News
Italian communications regulator Agcom has fined Sky Italia a total of EUR 2.4 million for failing to adequately inform users about changes to its 'Sky Calcio' football package. The broadcaster allegedly failed to inform subscribers about the difference in content between its 2017-8 and 2018-19 Sky Calcio packages as well as the existence of penalty-free cancellation clauses, infringing their right to choose. The watchdog pointed out that the 2018-19 Sky Calcio package didn't include all Serie A games, after DAZN acquired rights to 3 of the 10 fixtures per match day.
