Ofcom annoys Sky


by David Allen

According to the regulator Ofcom, the state of pay-for-television in the UK is weaker than it is in other countries, as although the level of service is on a similar standing, the actual way that content is packaged is not.

This comment, in Ofcom’s second Consultation Document on pay TV, has annoyed the management at Sky who believe that they have done a good job for TV over the past twenty years, especially in the field of sport and film.

Yet Ofcom feels that Sky has not done anything to promote competition in these areas.

Sky believes that Ofcom should review its proposals, which were made after rivals Virgin Media, BT, Setanta Sports and Top Up TV complained about Sky’s dominant role in pay for TV.

According to Sky there is no evidence that the UK satellite and pay-TV market prices are any higher than in other countries.
