ITV could stop PSB by 2014


by David Allen

ITV has made no attempt to hide the fact that they no longer wish to produce regional programming such as news, regional based programmes, religious programmes and current affairs shows.

In fact, they have already been making moves in an attempt to cut back their spending by around £40 million.

ITV feel that because of the amount of channels available to digital viewers, this is reducing their ability to attract the amount of advertising revenues to pay for public service broadcasting, and they want to focus on shows that they know work and appeal to the advertisers.

Ofcom are due to release the second installment of their future of public broadcasting in the UK report.

It is expected that they will recommend that the BBC should share part of the TV Licence fee with other broadcasters, which would go towards funding public service broadcasting.
