Synopsis

This report has been archived and was last updated in May 2004. In March 2002, Optus announced its intention to hand over its content arrangements to Foxtel. It was no longer able to sustain its ongoing losses in this industry and was threatening to pull out of the residential (cable TV) market altogether if the deal was disallowed by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC). This report looks at how the proposal developed over the course of 2002 on the way to an ACCC rejection and eventual approval. Our extensive analysis of the issues and ACCC decision is included.
