The filings, made this week with the office of the United States Trade Representative, come as a growing number of global sports and television bodies look to shut down beoutQ, a TV station they claim is based in Saudi Arabia and broadcasting sports and entertainment they hold exclusive rights for. BeoutQ emerged in 2017 after Saudi Arabia and its Gulf allies launched a diplomatic and trade boycott of Qatar, which it accused of supporting terrorism, which Doha denies, saying the boycott seeks to curtail its sovereignty.

    Netflix now has more than 5 million subscribers in France, a spokesman for the U.S. video streaming giant said on Wednesday, confirming a report by daily Le Figaro.

    Telecom Italia auditors unable to convene shareholder meeting requested by Vivendi

    Telecom Italia auditors are unable to meet a request by leading investor Vivendi for them to call a shareholder meeting this month to replace five board members, they said on Monday. TIM has been caught up in a battle between Vivendi and U.S. activist fund Elliott since early last year over how to revive Italy's biggest phone company. Elliott, which owns 9.4 percent of TIM, wrested control from Vivendi in May by appointing two thirds of the board after accusing the French investor of serving only its own interests.

    Elliott lifts Telecom Italia stake as shareholder battle looms

    U.S. hedge fund Elliott has raised its stake in Telecom Italia (TIM) to 9.4 percent, a SEC filing showed on Thursday, escalating a power battle over the Italian phone group with top shareholder Vivendi. TIM has been caught up since early last year in a tug-of-war between French media group Vivendi and Elliott over how to revive Italy's biggest telephone group, an underperforming business saddled with 25 billion euros (22 billion pounds) of debt. Elliott had so far disclosed a stake of 8.8 percent, compared with Vivendi's share of just under 24 percent.

    Elliott Has a Rocky Path to Telecom Italia Victory

    The communications regulator said the plan, proposed by then-CEO Amos Genish last year, to separate the landline network legally  didn’t go far enough to justify giving the firm an easier ride when it comes to issues like pricing. Since it built up a shareholding in the carrier almost a year ago, Elliott has been pushing for the sale of a majority stake in the network, with the expectation that at least some of the proceeds are returned to shareholders. The American firm then succeeded in getting investors to elect a board controlled by directors it nominated, who in turn pushed out Genish in December in favor of former banker Luigi Gubitosi.

    Elliott calls on Telecom Italia to press ahead with full network split

    Activist investor Elliott urged Telecom Italia's (TLIT.MI) board to spin-off its fixed-line network, after Italy's telecoms regulator gave an initial thumbs-down to a Vivendi plan to create a wholly-owned subsidiary instead. AGCOM said on Sunday that the proposal drawn up by former Chief Executive Amos Genish, appointed when French media group Vivendi (VIV.PA) controlled Telecom Italia's (TIM) board, would not reduce the power TIM has got over the market. Elliott and Vivendi are locked in a battle over how to relaunch the debt-laden former Italian telecoms monopoly after the U.S. fund last year managed to wrestle control of TIM's board away from top shareholder Vivendi.
