DT talks more cable sales

German cable providers in flux

BERLIN — Deutsche Telekom has announced it is in negotiations with Klesch & Co. for the further sale of two other regional cable networks, one covering the northern German states of Hamburg, Schleswig-Holstein and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and the eastern franchise, which includes Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia.

The London-based Klesch has already acquired a majority share in the Hesse cable system.

Meanwhile, the European Union has OK’d Deutsche Telekom’s sale of its North Rhine-Westphalia network to Callahan Associates Intl., saying the deal would not lead to a dominant position in the market. Telekom is retaining a 45% stake in the NRW franchise.

Further negotiations are continuing with the Bavarian Cable TV Consortium for the Bavarian network and with U.S./Dutch cable group UPC for the system covering Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland.
