Telewest reaches price agreement with Sky



Cable operator Telewest has reached a new agreement with Sky on the price at which it can sell the satellite broadcaster's premium sports and movie channels. According to press reports, Telewest MD Charles Burdick said that the Office of Fair Trading is examining the proposal and could give approval within the next month. "It's a win-win deal for both sides. It contains the necessary incentives for us to market Sky's channels and will be valuable to them," Burdick commented.
