ITV, Virgin Move on From Dispute With Broadcast Content Deal

Britain’s biggest free-to-air commercial broadcaster ITV Plc agreed to a three-year content deal with cable-TV provider Virgin Media, moving on from a dispute over payments. ITV demanded for years that Virgin, a unit of John Malone’s Liberty Global Plc, pay a so-called retransmission fee to show its main channel ITV1. The agreement comes as new ITV Chief Executive Officer Carolyn McCall stamps her mark on the company she joined in January.
