UK communications regulator Ofcom has removed the 'wholesale must offer' regulation requiring Sky to make its flagship sports channels available to competitors including BT. Under the regulation issued in 2010, Sky was obliged to make Sky Sports 1 and 2 available to all UK television providers. Ofcom also set the wholesale pricing of the Sky Sports channels. In a statement issued on Thursday this week, Ofcom said that the decision came after consulting on the relevance of the regulation in the current pay TV market. The regulator decided that Sky is supplying its channels 'widely and on commercial terms outside of the regulation'.

    Total pay TV subscribers increased by just 0.4% in Europe in Q2 2015, representing the slowest rate of growth in the region as a whole since Q3 2010. Pay TV declined in 11 markets in the quarter. In most of these cases, particularly the Nordic markets and the Netherlands, this was part of continuing trend of quarterly pay TV losses. In Romania however, the quarterly decline ended a period of consistent growth. Two of Europe's largest pay TV markets, the UK and Spain, exhibited some of the highest growth in the region in Q2 2015. The driving force was the same in both: IPTV.
