AGCOM approves TivuSat but investigates Rai

Italian regulator AGCOM has given a green light to new free-to-air satellite platform TivuSat but has opened an investigation into public broadcaster Rai’s decision to broadcast its digital channels on the new platform and on digital-terrestrial and to withdraw from Sky Italia.

Issues to be looked into include lack of information given to subscribers and lack of notice given of the changes in the way the channels could be viewed.
