Tele2 to sell analogue services over UPC and Ziggo networks

Tele2 Netherlands plans to resell analogue cable TV over the networks of cable operators Ziggo and UPC from June, according to local reports.

Following a recent decision by regulator Opta, the Dutch cable operators are obliged to open up their analogue networks to competitors. Tele2 already delivers a digital TV service over its own network, but analogue cable remains the primary delivery system for second and third TVs in the households it serves.
