This document explains Ofcom’s provisional views on a request by the BBC to change its Operating Licence, in order to increase the provision of children’s news through the Newsround website and provide more new children’s content on BBC iPlayer. We are also inviting views from others.
Children’s viewing habits have changed fundamentally in recent years. Given these changes, the BBC must innovate and adapt its approach to serving younger audiences. The BBC acknowledges this and has come to Ofcom with a proposal for how it could better engage children through its online services. To be able to proceed with these plans, the BBC has requested changes to its Operating Licence.
