Ofcom set to approve BBC’s DDT plans

January 25, 2010

One of the matters holding up the roll out of high definition TV on the Freeview digital television platform, is the BBC’s demand for more stringent copy protection rules to be in place before the content is broadcast.

So far, no compromises seem to have been made and therefore the regulator, Ofcom, is going to have to make a snap decision if the HD content from the BBC is to make it onto the Freeview service.

Ofcom has until the 2nd April under the current consultation plan, but it is believed that it wants to get this sorted before then and, in order to do so, it is willing to give the go ahead to the BBC’s proposals to put protection in place to prevent copies being made of HD content.
