Title: 1w going to 5e or 5e going to 1w?!

Canal Digital are discussing with MTG/Viasat to buy the Nordic Canal+ operation, giving them a monopoly on premium channels in the Nordic regions, in return Viasat would give up their own satellite platform on Sirius to Telenor/Canal Digital and the 1 west slot.

I would have thought that if Viasat are looking at C+ Nordic it would make sense to move the lot over to 5e? Maybe Gorth or Belmando knows anything else about this?

hi steve

its gonna be very spectacular move by MTG(viasat owner)if they can do it ,but mostly it might be  just a speculation that happened before ,when Steinbeck was in charge _very closed to sign _ but changed his mind .

I am against this cause we dont want a new  monopoly like in uk(sky)
we will see what gorth m8  says about this

according to  the link you gave(its in swedish)its seems that Viasat will leave 5e to move 1 west,might be beter for  you

mvh
