BBC iPlayer Competition Assessment: Consultation on Ofcom’s provisional determination

  • Start: 12 June 2019
  • Status: Closed
  • End: 10 July 2019

The BBC has proposed to change BBC iPlayer from a service where programmes are available to ‘catch-up’ for 30 days after broadcast, to one where programmes are available for 12 months as standard, with some available for longer.

As required by the BBC Charter and Agreement, we are carrying out a competition assessment, under which we:

  • look at the public value provided by the BBC’s proposals;
  • analyse the way in which they impact on competition; and
  • consider whether that public value justifies any adverse impacts that we identify.

This document sets out our analysis and provisional conclusions. We are consulting on our conclusions for four weeks and expect to publish our final conclusions by August 2019.
