The state media authorities in Bavaria, and Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein have given “unconditional media concentration clearance” for the acquisition of 57.4% of Sky Deutschland.
In addition, as announced on 6th October 2014, the requisite majority of independent shareholders have
voted in favour of the acquisitions.
Last week BSkyB received approval at European level.
BSkyB launched its £7 billion bid for Sky Deutschland and Sky Italia on July 25th.
