Sky Legal Threat To TVN-Austar

Friday, 5th August 2005

However TVN's arch-rival Sky Channel "is considering a court injunction preventing pay-TV carrier Austar from showing Sydney & Victorian meetings," reported The Daily Telegraph. Austar "began beaming TVN coverage of the Geelong races to regional digital subscribers yesterday", but Sky "believes the TVN-Austar alliance is in breach of an existing exclusive race broadcast agreement" it has with Austar. Senior Sky executives were "considering their legal options last night, but refusing to make any public comment."
