EWT buys Tele Columbus

19 Sep 2006

Unity Media has agreed to sell German cable operator Tele Columbus to rival EWT for an undisclosed sum. In August 2006 Unity announced the sale of Tele Columbus’s 460,000 cable TV subscriptions in Hesse and Badem-Wuerttemberg to local operators, along with the transfer of 500,000 customers in Rhine-Westphalia to subsidiary ish Kabel. The remaining 1.5 million Tele Columbus subscribers will be acquired by EWT by the end of this year, roughly doubling its customer base.
