Regulatory fees for on-demand programme services

Statement published 9 May

In this document, Ofcom outlines its new regulatory fees regime for on-demand programme services (“ODPS”) under section 368NA of the Communications Act 2003 (“the Act”).

Our proposal is to introduce a tiered fees structure; there will be no fees for the smallest providers, and the largest fees will be paid by providers with the largest annual turnover.

Since 1 January 2016, Ofcom has been the sole regulator for editorial content on ODPS and did not charge fees for the financial year 2016/17. Following a recent consultation on our proposals we intend to introduce this new fee structure in 2017/18.

This new fees regime will be introduced with immediate effect.
