TIM to include Mediaset in Canal Plus joint venture - report

Monday 15 January 2018 | 09:36 CET | News
Telecom Italia (TIM) is set to approve a new version of its broadcasting joint venture with Vivendi's pay-TV unit Canal Plus following a probe by market regulator Consob, reports Il Sole 24 Ore. TIM announced in October that it will have a 60 percent stake in the new company and Canal Plus 40 percent but Mediaset will now be invited to become the third partner in the joint venture to help resolve the legal impasse between Vivendi and the Italian broadcaster.
