A programme that is yet to be broadcast on TV or radio, or shown on a video on demand service

Ofcom isn't a censor and we don't have the powers to approve programmes before they are broadcast on TV or radio services or shown on video on demand services.

However, broadcasters and on-demand service providers must make sure their programmes don't break our rules. If you are concerned about a programme which has not yet been shown on a television, radio or on-demand service then you should contact the relevant broadcaster or service provider.

Here is a list of our licensed TV broadcasters and a list of radio broadcasters, as well as a list of video-on-demand programme service providers we regulate. Radio-on-demand service providers are not regulated.
