Cell C Urges Competition Commission To Look Into SuperSport's Anti-Competitive Practices

Mr Jose Dos Santos, the Chief Executive of Cell C South Africa, have asked the South African market competition authorities to look into the market dominance and continued market practices of Multichoice and SuperSport in the African content rights market.

Mr Jose Dos Santos' view is that DStv seems to have strewn-up most of the valuable rights especially in sports. He said that for example, the Rugby rights belong to Supersport, and with their pricing, they have effectively made the game inaccessible to the majority of South Africans that are unable to pay the Supersport asking price.

Mr Dos Santos is asking for streaming and broadcasting rights for premium content to be unbundled and licensed on a non-exclusive basis. This, by his reckoning, will provide a fair access solution that works well for all stakeholders in the industry.
