Review of the pay TV wholesale must-offer obligation - Supplementary consultation

  • Start: 27 July 2015
  • Status: Closed
  • End: 21 September 2015

In December 2014 we issued a consultation (‘the 2014 WMO consultation’) on the first phase of our review of the rules that require Sky to offer its Sky Sports 1 and 2 channels to other pay TV retailers on a wholesale basis. We received a number of responses to the 2014 WMO consultation which we are continuing to consider.

In this document we are consulting further with stakeholders on whether Sky’s insistence on reciprocal supply of key sports content (i.e. making supply of its key sports channels conditional on a rival supplying its own key sports content to Sky) is a practice which may be prejudicial to fair and effective competition.

We plan to set out the conclusions of our assessment from both this consultation, and the 2014 WMO consultation, later in 2015. Where necessary, we will consult further on any proposed remedies.
