Synopsis

In March 2002, Optus announced that it intended 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. This initial rejection is summarised and analysed here.
