blog Well, we knew Optus chief executive Paul O’Sullivan’s fighting words about the Foxtel/Austar merger wouldn’t go down well in some quarters, but we didn’t quite expect this epic spray from Foxtel chief Kim Williams. Courtesy of The Australian (click to read the full story):
“It appears that Optus has a position on content which equates to one where we do all the work and they reap a free-rider benefit with no strategic, financial or risk input by them,” Mr Williams said. ” … To say I find the position unsatisfactory, delusional and evidence of historical revisionism on a grand scale is to understate my response.”
We wouldn’t want to be in the same room when Optus and Foxtel bumped heads … although that might occur at the Mumbrella 360 conference next week, which will feature the elite of Australia’s media industry all in the same venue? Oh dear.
