Sky is too controlling of the pay-TV film rights in the UK and this is restricting competition, contrary to UK competition law, according to a provisional ruling from the Competition Commission. The Commission is considering restricting the number of films from which Sky is exclusively first to show on UK television. Despite having twice as many subscribers as all of its competitors put together, Sky argues that there is no problem and the current situation should continue. Sky has agreements with all six major Hollywood film studios so that the satellite broadcaster can be first to show the new films on its channels. The final ruling is expected to be issued next year.
