Ofcom delivers two important reports
Brian Butterworth published on UK Free TV
Proposed BSkyB Digital Terrestrial Television Services - Ofcom and Pay TV second consultation - Ofcom published today by Ofcom.
In total, we received 450 responses to our October consultation: 426 responses from members of the public and 24 responses from organisations. As a brief overview:
- About 87 per cent of the 426 individuals who responded said we should not consent to the proposal under any circumstances.
- Sky was the only organisation which said explicitly that we should consent to the proposal unconditionally.
- The majority of the other organisations (including all of Sky's retail competitors) said that we should not consent to the proposal, or consent to it only if appropriate ex ante conditions were imposed on Sky.
- Most organisations also said that we need to consider the proposal alongside our wider pay TV market investigation.
Analysis will follow later today
