Italian NCA rejects RTI's complaint against Sky

"There are no conditions to accuse SKY of abusing a dominant position in relation to the purchase of the TV rights for the football tournament matches of the UEFA Champions League in the seasons from 2012 to 2015, and for broadcasting the World Cups in 2010 and 2014. The Antitrust decided this, closing the investigation initiated against the company in November 2010 concerning TV rights for the World Cup and extended to July 2011 for the purchase of TV rights for the Uefa Champions League for the seasons 2012-2015." (see AGCM's press release).
