Mediaset Plus has been withdrawn from Sky Italia’s channel line-up due to what are described as serious breaches of contract by RTI, which is part of the Mediaset group.

The agreement signed by Sky Italia and RTI contained a number of commitments including one that Mediaset Plus would air a number of highly popular programmes such as Who wants to be a millionaire, La Corrida and Paperissima that are carried on other Mediaset channels such as MediasetExtra and La5.

However, this has not been the case.

Mediaset Plus was created to offer the best of Canale 5, Italia 1 and Rete 4 on Sky Italia.
