  1. It’s definitely a must for telcos having TV services to secure content rights, be it through long term partnerships, own produced content, or as in this case, acquiring the holders of the actual content rights. Important to differentiate yourself among other telcos, but vital to compete against OTT video service providers.
    Up to the regulator to decide whether these moves, that we will see more and more frequently, could limit customer choices.
    I definitely do not see this being the case.
