Description of Conduct

On 15 February 2007 Sky Channel Pty Ltd, Tabcorp Holdings Ltd and ThoroughVision Pty Ltd (collectively referred to as the parties) lodged an application for authorisation. The parties sought authorisation for a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which broadly sets out the commercial terms between Sky and TVN for the sharing of thoroughbred racing content.

On 4 July 2007 the ACCC issued a final determination granting authorisation, subject to a condition, to the MOU. The condition states: Should Tabcorp/Sky decide to supply the Sky and TVN Channels as a bundled product to commercial venues with wagering facilities, that is, pubs, clubs or their equivalent, Tabcorp/Sky must at least offer the Sky Channel separately to such venues.

Authorisation is granted for the term of the MOU which is until 31 December 2012.
