Statement: Review of competition rules in the EPG Code

  • Start: 14 August 2020
  • Status: Statement published
  • End: 25 September 2020

Statement published 30 November 2020

This statement sets out our decision to retain competition rules on electronic programme guide (EPG) providers to continue to support fair and effective competition.

On-screen TV guides, or EPGs, enable viewers to find and select TV programmes on broadcast or ‘linear’ TV. Our EPG Code sets rules on EPG providers, including rules to protect fair and effective competition.

The Digital Economy Act 2017 introduced a requirement on us to review the EPG Code before 1 December 2020. We issued provisional conclusions of our review in August 2020. This statement presents the final conclusions of our review.
