Mediaset set for Netherlands move

Mediaset is set to receive backing from its shareholders over its plans to shift its legal base to the Netherlands.

The Italian broadcaster has long held ambitions to launch a pan-European media operation dubbed MediaForEurope as a means of providing competition to European tech and streaming giants like Netflix, Google and Facebook. This plan had been opposed by major shareholder Vivendi in a years-long spat, but the pair made peace last month.
