Terms have been agreed for the purchase of Irish commercial TV group TV3 by Liberty Global subsidiary UPC, Ireland’s leading connected entertainment provider.

“We’re pleased to welcome TV3 to the Liberty Global family,” comments Magnus Ternsjö, CEO of UPC Ireland. “The investment we are making today secures the long-term future of TV3 Group. With its wide range of home-grown programming, TV3 holds a unique place in the heart of Irish viewers. This is a terrific addition to the TV service we offer – which is already the best in Ireland.”
