Sky out, Mediaset in, at Digital+
BSkyB has confirmed it is not interested in bidding for Spain’s Digital+ pay-TV system. However, Mediaset’s chairman Fedele Confalonieri says the Berlusconi-owned business is definitely looking at the broadcaster.
"It's on the market, we are looking at it," he told reporters at a Milan conference. Prisa, which owns Digital+, is expecting final bids to be submitted in the next two weeks, and for a sale to be concluded next year.
Local reports suggest that there are about 10 interested parties still in the frame, with bids ranging from a low of €2.9bn ($3.7bn).
