Portuguese media regulator Anacom is to investigate the amount charged by Portugal Telecom to distribute their channels over the country’s terrestrial network. However, it says no immediate action is required.
It’s closed the application for immediate intervention requested by public broadcast RTP in favour of “a detailed investigation of the costs”.
RTP is looking to reduce the fees it pays to broadcast over DTT.
In a draft decision published by Anacom on its website, the regulator says it cannot be argued unequivocally that the price is successive, adding that there was no evidence identified of anti-competitive activity by the transmission company.
