Decision – 965 TV Limited
Ofcom has imposed a sanction on 965 TV Limited after our investigation found that it had failed to comply with our advertising rules on its Studio 66 TV service.
On five dates in March and April 2021, Studio 66 TV featured material which included sexually explicit language and behaviour. In our Decision published on 8 November 2021 in Issue 438 of Ofcom’s Broadcast and On Demand Bulletin (PDF, 323.3 KB), Ofcom found that the advertisements were capable of causing widespread offence and had the potential to harm or distress children. We therefore found that the material had breached rules, 23.3, 32.3 and 4.2 of the UK Code of Broadcast Advertising (BCAP Code).
Ofcom has imposed a financial penalty of £15,000 on the licensee 965 TV Limited.
