The future of public service broadcasting

Inquiry

The inquiry will look at the future of public service broadcasting (PSB) within the wider media and digital ecology, including funding, content and regulation of PSBs and how this compares with alternative subscription, streaming services and Freeview services.

In addition to the BBC, there are a number of other broadcasters across the UK with PSB responsibilities: ITV (Channel 3), Channel 4, Channel 5 operate nationally, and STV (Scotland), S4C (Wales) and UTV (Northern Ireland) operate in the devolved nations.
