ABSTRACT
This article reports that France's two digital satellite TV platforms are in talks over a merger. Industry observers have for years considered that a merger between Canal Satellite, controlled by Vivendi Universal SA, and TPS, jointly owned by commercial broadcasters TF1 and M6, was only a matter of time. France is the only European territory with rival digital satellite platforms. Canal Satellite has about 3 million subscribers to its package of TV and radio channels and digital services, while TPS has about 1.4 million.
