Merger expected to get thumbs up

17 Jan 2005

Liberty Media expects Chile’s Supreme Court to uphold the local antitrust regulator’s decision to approve the merger of its local cable TV units VTR and Metropolis. Liberty has earmarked USD300 million for post-merger investment, in particular expanding the network across the entire country. It also intends to introduce a VoIP service if it can gain permission from the country’s regulator.
