This document sets out Ofcom’s conclusions on its third Review of Public Service Broadcasting (PSB). It considers the performance of the PSB system as a whole, the potential challenges it faces in the future, and ways in which the system might be maintained and strengthened.
It is published alongside a separate statement which considers the performance of the PSB system in each of the UK’s Nations and their regions specifically. We have also published supporting evidence, including a data annex, consultancy and new audience research.
Ofcom has today published a consultation on its third review of public service broadcasting. Today’s review examines how the BBC, ITV, STV, UTV, Channel 4, Channel 5 and S4C have fulfilled the purposes of public service broadcasting (PSB) since Ofcom’s 2008 review.
