      Competition Watchdog Rules On BSkyB

      The Competition Commission has provisionally found against BSkyB over its 17.9% share purchase of ITV.

      The purchase restricts competition and therefore operates against the public interest, it said.

      "As a pay-TV operator, BSkyB faces competition from the free-to-air TV offer, of which ITV is an important part," said CC chairman Peter Freeman.

      Re: Competition Watchdog Rules On BSkyB

      I was reading about this earlier and I can't say I am surprised by the provisional virdict against Sky. From the outside looking in it appears that Sky only brought into ITV to stop them possibly tying up with Virgin Media.
