The European Commission has cleared, in the second phase of the proceedings, the acquisition of Télé 2 fixed telephony and internet access businesses by the French mobile operator SFR, subject to conditions. According to the Commission’s original investigation, the transaction would give rise to competition concerns in the market for pay-TV. The concerns related to the vertical integration between Vivendi, one of the parent companies of SFR, and Télé 2, which has pay-TV distribution activities. However, following commitments offered by the merging parties relating mainly to access to pay-TV content, the Commission decided to clear the deal.
