Italy must launch TV license sales quickly, EU says (ANSA) - Brussels, February 6 - Italy is ultimately responsible for the speedy launch of a new auction that will sell three 20-year digital television licenses, a European Commission spokesman said, adding that the body was in contact with the Italian authorities over the development. "In final analysis it is their responsibility to quickly launch the auction, in line with EU laws, to ensure access to new entries or allow the smaller operators to expand," said a spokesman for Competition Commissioner Joaquín Almunia.
