EU finds few major hurdles in Germany from Vodafone-Liberty deal - sources

BRUSSELS, April 2 (Reuters) - The European Union has not raised major concerns about the impact of Vodafone buying Liberty Global’s assets on the cable market in Germany or on fixed line-mobile convergence in the Czech Republic, sources said.

Regulators are looking at the impact of the $22 billion deal on competition in the broadband market between cable and DSL operators, on the combined group’s relationship with broadcasters and any affect on the wholesale cable TV market, the sources said.
