Sky questions Ofcom over PSB


by David Allen

Public service broadcasting (PSB) has been in the news for a while now and Ofcom, the media regulator, has seen fit to launch a review into how PSB will operate over the coming years, as the terrestrial channels appear to be having a hard time reaching their PSB targets.

Sky believe that the situation is not as bad as it is being made out to be, and have challenged Ofcom as to what their expectations are from the channels charged with providing programming on public interest subjects.

The review by Ofcom started when channels such as ITV and Channel Four began to cut back on PSB because of the costs involved.

Sky is in fact against the idea that it is the only free to air channels that provide quality PSB.

They say that a free market would mean that programmes that serve the public interest could be provided on pay TV too.
