Statement published 6 April 2017
This document reports on Ofcom’s decisions to alter the way it collects and publishes data on the accessibility of on-demand programme services (“ODPS”) for people with hearing and/or sight impairments.
It also sets out Ofcom’s plans more generally for meeting its duties to:
a) encourage providers of ODPS to ensure their services are progressively made more accessible to people with hearing and/or sight impairments; and
b) ensure that providers of ODPS promote programmes of European origin, known as ‘European works’.
Have a look at this year's report on the accessibility of on-demand programme services. You can also see the Accessibility of on-demand programme services – interactive data or the accessibility data tables (accessible version) (XLSX, 37.4 KB).
