Telefonica ready to share Digital+ content - report

Tuesday 14 April 2015 | 08:43 CET | News
Telefonica is prepared to accept the requirement to open up the content of Spanish pay-TV platform Digital+ to rivals such as Vodafone-Ono and Orange to secure the approval of Spain's communications regulator CNMC to its proposed takeover. Unnamed sources cited by El Economista suggest that the operator has agreed to this key requirement but isn't ready to accept other conditions referring to the distribution of the content via its fibre optic network. These could include the request to create wholesale packages including pay-TV and fixed access to be resold by rivals.
