Altice Europe has announced that SFR FTTH has entered into an exclusivity agreement with Cube Infrastructure Fund and Partners Group regarding the acquisition of 100% of Covage for a total cash consideration of €1.0 billion.
The Autorité de la concurrence has lifted the restrictions placed on Altice, imposed when its subsidiary Numericable acquired the mobile network SFR.
Arris is to bring a connected home experience to SFR subscribers in France.
Agreement has been reached between Altice and Iliad, parent company of Free, over the retransmission of BFMTV , RMC Découverte and RMC Story.
The founder of BFMTV has told a press conference that Orange should be free to resume the retransmission of his channels.
Orange has become the second major French operator to cease the retransmission of Altice-owned channels.
A week after Altice channels were removed from Free screens, the boss of Orange has said it’s a path his network could also find itself on.
Altice channels BFMTV, RMC Découverte and RMC Story remain available on the French IPTV network Free, despite the passing of a deadline on Friday that was expected to lead to their removal.
The heated retrans fee dispute between Free and Altice has taken a new turn.
The French regulator CSA has ruled what has been termed a Judgement of Soloman in the dispute between Free and Altice.
