Germany’s second largest cable operator Tele Columbus and ARTE have settled their legal dispute over the conditions of the cable carriage of the European cultural channel and agreed on a comprehensive cooperation.
This was announced by Tele Columbus and ARTE without giving further details. The agreement forms the basis for ARTE to be distributed in all available resolutions on the cable networks of the Tele Columbus Group.
The contract also covers the integration of digital add-on services, enabling cable customers to directly access ARTE’s catch-up service through the digital platform of Tele Columbus.
In April 2020, ARTE settled its long-standing legal dispute with Germany’s largest cable operator Vodafone over the carriage conditions and agreed on a long-term partnership.
