Sky Italia fined EUR 7 mln for consumer code breach

Tuesday 19 February 2019 | 14:53 CET | News
Italian antitrust watchdog AGCM has fined Sky Italia a total of EUR 7 million for two breaches of the country's consumer code following an investigation. The company was accused of failing to provide adequate information on the limits of its football offer for the 2018-19 season, above all with regard to the number of games broadcast and penalty-free cancellation clauses. Specifically, the broadcaster failed to inform potential subscribers that its package didn't include all Serie A games, after DAZN acquired rights to 3 of the 10 fixtures per match day.
