BSkyB responds to Ofcom statement

BSkyB notes today’s statement by Ofcom regarding the outcome of its Pay TV market investigation. The company confirms its intention to challenge Ofcom’s conclusions before the Competition Appeal Tribunal.



Commenting on Ofcom’s statement, a Sky spokesperson said: 



“There should be no doubt that Ofcom’s actions represent an unprecedented and unwarranted intervention. 



“This is a marketplace where customers are well served with high levels of choice and innovation. Consumers will not benefit if regulators blunt incentives to invest and take risks. 



“After three years of engagement with Ofcom, we now look forward to a judicial process which will apply impartial analysis and clear legal standards.”
