Al Jazeera Media Networks is still studying an investment in the Mediaset Premium pay-TV arm of Italian commercial broadcaster Mediaset, Rapid TV News has reported. “Mediaset is a big company and a great opportunity for us … we’re evaluating the possibility in different ways,” Sheikh Ali Bin Thamer al Thani, a member of the Qatari ruling family, told reporters at an event in Palermo. “Anything is possible,” he added. The debt-ridden MediaSet Premium, which is owned by former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, currently serves just over two million subscribers. Mediaset also owns 22% of Spanish pay-TV platform Digital+.
