Local TV in the PSB System

Posted by & filed under Policy.

Ofcom has published a report which sets out a range of ways in which the current system of Public Service Broadcasting (PSB) might be changed to help deliver local TV services. It has been produced at the request of the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport.

The report sets out options relating to the commercial PSB providers – ITV1, Channel 4/S4C and Five – and possible ways that new providers of local services might be assisted now and in the future.

Ofcom’s report raises a number of issues for the Government to consider before deciding how it will deliver local TV.
