Liberty: We won’t fight Sky for rights

February 6, 2013

Liberty Global CEO Mike Fries told analysts the newly enlarged Liberty Global had no intention of sparring with BSkyB over content rights.

“Neil’s [Berkett, Virgin CEO] has done a great job with building a strong relationship with Sky that is not based on personalities or drama,” he said. “The result of that relationship is a strong commitment to share content and make sure Virgin has access to the important premium programming in the marketplace. We do not see any reason why that would change or any reason why Virgin Media needs to compete with Sky for that premium content.”
