Broadcaster RTL has expressed its opposition to Dutch cable operators plans to offer wholesale analogue TV packages to other service providers, according to local reports.
Luxembourg-based CLT-UFA, which owns channels RTL4, 5, 7 and 8, said that cable operators UPC and Ziggo could only distribute the channels under their own brands under their existing transmission contracts.
UPC and Ziggo have been obliged to make wholesale offers to third parties by local regulator Opta. However, in a response to OptaÂs consultation, CLT-UFA has said it will hold the cable operators to the terms of their original contracts.
Separately, Ziggo has reportedly decided to stop offering German channels ProSieben and Kabel 1 from May to make way for more popular channels.
