Kangaroo goes to the Competition Commission

OFT notice that it has referred the proposed Internet video-on-demand joint venture between the BBC's commercial arm BBC Worldwide, ITV and Channel 4 to the Competition Commission for an in-depth investigation into the possibility of a substantial lessening of competition.

The decision will be published once a redacted version has been prepared; the OFT is normally quick at doing this.

The Competition Commission has an inquiry page.

For further information or advice please contact Franck Latrémolière.
