The Spanish regulator CNMC has filed disciplinary proceedings against Telefónica for a possible breach of commitments in the acquisition of DTS in April 2015.
Telefonica incorrectly calculated the fixed costs of its Movistar Partidazo channel during the 2016/17 season, the Spanish competition body has ruled.
The high value services offered by Telefónica’s Movistar Fusión are growing in popularity, with 32% of its 4.2 million customers opting for internet access of 100 or 300 Mbps and 62% for pay-TV.
Although the total number of pay-TV subscribers in Spain in Q2 was barely changed on the previous quarter, IPTV and cable gained, and DTH lost, customers.
The Spanish regulator CNMC has fined Telefónica and DTS a total of €15.5 million for the marketing of football broadcasting rights.
