Telefonica 'overcharged rivals' for its football channel in 2016-2017 season - CNMC

Wednesday 19 June 2019 | 09:51 CET | News
Spain's communications and competition regulator CNMC has launched proceedings leading to possible fines against Telefonica for breaching the conditions of its acquisition of pay-TV platform DTS, or Digital+ as it is also known, by failing to provide wholesale access to the premium football content of the acquired channels at a guaranteed minimum rate. In a statement, the watchdog said its analysis revealed that Telefonica wrongly calculated the costs of its 'Movistar Partidazo' football channel in its wholesale offer of pay-TV channels during the 2016-2017 season.
