Tele2 sues cable operators over analogue access

Dutch service provider Tele2 has filed a law suit against cable operators Ziggo and UPC to force them to offer licences to Tele2 to provide their analogue TV packages to end customers, according to local reports.

Regulator OPTA has mandated the cable operators to open up access to their analogue networks on a wholesale basis. However, the cable operators have said that their contracts with TV channel providers are not transferable. Tele2 argues that the cable operators can continue to supply the channels, with third-party operators providing billing services.
