UK's Carlton acquires HTV franchise

UK media concern Carlton Communications has confirmed it is buying the HTV TV franchise from rival Granada Media. Carlton is paying just over $263m in cash for HTV and its 20% stake in Meridian, the ITV broadcaster for south-east England. Granada had to sell HTV to satisfy competition requirements after it bought the broadcaster as part of a package of ITV assets from United News & Media in July.
