Press conference by Joaquín Almunia, on restrictions affecting cross border provision of pay TV services

200 views

On 13 January 2014, Joaquín Almunia, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Competition, held a press conference on the formal antitrust proceedings opened by the European Commission to examine certain provisions in licensing agreements between several major US film studios (Twentieth Century Fox, Warner Bros., Sony Pictures, NBCUniversal, Paramount Pictures) and the largest European pay-TV broadcasters such as BSkyB of the UK, Canal Plus of France, Sky Italia of Italy, Sky Deutschland of Germany and DTS of Spain. The Commission will in particular investigate whether these provisions prevent broadcasters from providing their services across borders, for example by refusing potential subscribers from other Member States or blocking cross-border access to their services.
