MILAN (Reuters) - A court hearing to see if Italian broadcaster Mediaset <MS.MI> and French media group Vivendi <VIV.PA> can reach an agreement to end a legal stand-off was postponed a few hours on Friday to give the two sides more time, a source close to the matter said.

The court hearing, initially scheduled to start at 1130 GMT, was delayed to 1430 GMT, the source said.
