Sky (BT/Ofcom WMO)
We advised Sky during BT’s appeal to the Competition Appeal Tribunal (CAT) against Ofcom’s 2015 decision to remove the “Wholesale Must-offer Obligation” (WMO). This obligation was introduced by Ofcom in 2010, whereby Sky was to offer wholesale access to certain sports channels at regulated prices and conditions. BT had appealed Ofcom’s decision and Sky was an intervenor in the proceedings in support of Ofcom. The CAT rejected BT’s appeal.
