UPC Cablecom must carry Joiz as analogue TV channel

Thursday 1 September 2011 | 11:27 CET | News
The Swiss Federal Administrative Court has decided that Liberty Global subsidiary UPC Cablecom has to carry Swiss youth TV channel Joiz as part of its analogue TV package, according to Netzwoche Ticker citing the verdict. UPC Cablecom was ordered by Swiss communications office Bakom to carry Joiz in its analogue and digital TV portfolio for a period of three years in 2010 and filed an appeal against the decision at the Federal Administrative Court. The appeal is rejected and Joiz will be added to UPC Cablecom's analogue TV portfolio before the end of this year.
