Ziggo starts talks with Fox on sports offer

Monday 22 August 2016 | 10:41 CET | News
Ziggo said it's in talks with Fox about a new offer for its cable customers. A spokesperson confirmed the talks following a report in the Algemeen Dagblad that Ziggo was concerned about the recent cut in price offered by rival KPN on the Fox Eredivisie football package. The spokesman said football fans can always find what they want at Ziggo, as the operator already offers a lot of football in its packages, and even with KPN's cut in price for the Eredivisie, the total price at Ziggo for comparable packages is attractive. He declined to say anything further about the negotiations with Fox.
