EU asks News Corp about rights deals with Sky-paper

LONDON, Oct 31 (BestGrowthStock) – The European Commission has
informally questioned News Corp (NWSA.O: ) about how it will
manage future sports and production rights if it fully acquires
BSkyB (BSY.L: ), the Sunday Telegraph reported, citing sources.

The paper said News Corp is only days away from formally
notifying the European Union of its interest in dominant pay-TV
firm BSkyB.

Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp is preparing to apply for formal
regulatory approval to buy the 61 percent of BSkyB it does not
already own, to add to the four national newspapers it already
runs in Britain. [ID:nLDE69L0RD]
