UK’s IMG Raided Over Top Broadcasters Sports Antitrust Probe


The offices of UK-based IMG Media Ltd. were searched by Britain’s antitrust watchdog as part of a wider probe into how some of the nation’s top sports TV broadcasters and production firms may have colluded to buy freelance services.

The Competition and Markets Authority said in a statement on Wednesday it had opened an investigation as it “has reasonable grounds to suspect one or more breaches of competition law” by firms also including Sky UK Ltd. and BT Group Plc and ITV Plc.
