Italy: Regulator imposes restrictions on Sky over Mediaset pay-TV deal

Italy’s antitrust regulator will impose a three-year ban on Sky’s Italian business from distributing exclusive contents on its online video-streaming service platform, it said on Wednesday.

The move follows a deal between Sky Italia and Italy’s biggest commercial broadcaster, Mediaset, which the regulator said would further limit competition in a market where Sky Italia is already a dominant player.

Sky Italia said it would appeal Italian competition watchdog’s decision.The two companies agreed last month to partially cancel the sale, citing the unlikelihood that the watchdog would approve the deal without setting conditions.
