Administrative Court revokes TV channel divestment order

13 August 2020 | newsletters

The Administrative Court recently overturned a Competition Protection Agency (CPA) divestment order, pursuant to which Dutch telecoms provider United Group was required to sell its Sport Klub TV channels for having breached the competition rules relating to market concentration.

Although the Administrative Court's ruling returns the case to the CPA for reconsideration, it does not affect the CPA's decision of July 2019, which was issued in a separate misdemeanour proceeding, to fine United Group €3.7 million for the late notification of its acquisition of the Sport Klub TV channels.
