The Office of Competition and Consumer Protection (UOKiK) approved the acquisition of N-Vision, a leading Polish media company which owns TVN television channels, by Southbank Media, a unit of Scripps Networks Interactive. UOKiK’s analysis of the transaction showed that the acquisition will affect the TV advertising market, particularly the sale of TV commercial time, but will not lessen competition because Southbank’s market share in Poland is currently marginal. Following the acquisition, Southbank Media will face competition from public broadcaster Telewizja Polska and private Cyfrowy Polsat. During its assessment of the transaction, UOKiK consulted TV broadcasting companies and the largest advertisers to assess the acquisition and the effect it will have on Poland’s national TV advertising market. The Office of Electronic Communications and National Broadcasting Council were also consulted.
