Murdoch launches Berlusconi teaser

Rupert Murdochs News Corp said it will launch Cielo, a new free-to-air digital TV channel, in Italy on the digital terrestrial network. Slated for a December launch, Cielo (which is Italian for Sky) will compete with Berlusconis Mediaset.

The new channel will be based in Milan and will not be part of the Sky Italia operation. Instead, News Corporation Stations Europe, the unit in charge of terrestrial TV channels in Europe outside the U.K. and Ireland, will be in control.

Cielo will enrich Italys digital terrestrial offer, bringing more competition in a sector dominated by Mediaset and RAI, said Gary Davey, CEO News Corporation Stations Europe, in a statement.

Cielo will broadcast both Italian made content as well as imported TV series and movies. The channel will use leased capacity from Gruppo Editoriale LEspresso on one of the countrys digital terrestrial multiplexes with a potential reach of 12 million homes.

The move is just the latest in an ongoing war between Italian broadcasters. In July, Mediaset withdrew its channels from the Sky Italia platform to set up its own DTH platform together with public broadcaster RAI.
