France's TF1 not discussing cross-border merger with Mediaset: spokeswoman

PARIS (Reuters) - TF1, France’s largest private TV broadcaster, is not discussing a major European cross-border deal with its Italian counterpart Mediaset, a spokeswoman for TF1 said on Thursday.

Mediaset’s boss, Pier Silvio Berlusconi, sparked speculation about a potential merger within the European broadcasting sector by saying his group was working on a large and complex combination.

The CEO of German broadcaster ProSiebenSat.1 Media, Max Conze, also said on Thursday that his group was not discussing such a deal and was instead focusing on developing its own business.
