BSkyB Ofcom appeal adjourned

The court hearing to decide whether British pay-TV operator BSkyB must wholesale its premium sports programming to rivals was unexpectedly adjourned this week.

The Competition Appeal Tribunal, which will make a decision on communications regulator Ofcom’s recent ruling that BSkyB must provide a new pricing structure for its sports channels, was adjourned until later this week. The News Corp-owned satellite pay-TV provider is looking to delay Ofcom’s ruling and one legal source said that the appeal could take up to nine months.
