„Romtelecom strongly believes that introducing a channel belonging to another operator in its own TV channels list breas the principles of competition”, Romtelecom representatives stated for Paginademedia.ro, related to introducing dii24 in their own channels list.
“We adopted this position as media space available for a provider at no costs, in its competitors networks, might lead to obtaining, unethically, a fast commercial advantage for the owner of the respective channel”, they added.
CNA decided to summon more cable companies, among which Romtelecom and UPC, for breaking the must carry principle. The 2 operators don’t have in their programs schedule channels that are free for retransmission, including RCS&RDS news channel.
