Dahlia off-air as rescue fails

February 28, 2011

Italian pay-DTT broadcaster Dahlia TV is off-air as new investors failed to materialise a month after it entered liquidation.

A statement on the company’s website announced: “Dahlia TV and his team are sorry to report that, despite all the efforts made in recent months to offer the best service and repay the trust its own customers, they are forced to stop broadcasting.”

The platform owned by Sweden’s AirPlus TV, had been hit hard by the ongoing price war between pay TV services operated by Mediaset and Sky TV. Last month, it was reported that AirPlus TV had refused to underwrite a €150 million rescue plan.
