Ziggo can continue to show Fox Sports to UPC customers, for the moment

Wednesday 26 July 2017 | 15:26 CET | News
The Amsterdam Court of Justice has ruled that VodafoneZiggo does not yet need to conclude a new agreement for the broadcast of Fox Sports. The verdict is preliminary, but VodafoneZiggo gives some space as 31 July, the day when the contract expires between Fox Sports and the former UPC, approaches. The ruling means that for the moment, VodafoneZiggo will be able to air Fox Sports content to former UPC customers based on current conditions.
