The French Competition Authority issues an opinion on TV content access exclusivity offers by Internet service providers

TV content access exclusivity offers by Internet service providers: The Autorité de la concurrence states its position*. Exclusive access must remain an exceptional solution, strictly limited in time and scope. Auto-distribution appears to be a satisfactory balancing solution, to the benefit of actors in the value chain and of consumers. Regulation of the wholesale market for pay-TV channels remains an indispensable complement. After a January 2009 referral from the French Minister for the economy, industry and employment, regarding exclusive relations between the activities of electronic communication operators and those of contents and services distribution, the Autorité de la concurrence issues today its opinion and publishes it on its Internet site www.autoritedelaconcurrence.fr.
