MILAN, Dec 19 (Reuters) - The hearing of a court case between Italian broadcaster Mediaset and France’s Vivendi over a failed pay-TV deal was postponed to Feb. 27, a judge ruled on Tuesday.
The two groups have been in a legal battle since the French group’s surprise decision to pull out of an April 2016 contract which would have handed it full control of Mediaset’s pay-TV unit Premium. Sources close to the matter have said that the two sides are in talks over a possible deal.
Should the companies find an agreement before the February hearing, the case could be closed, judge Vincenzo Perozziello said on Tuesday.
