I have recently written to both the Dept. for Cultue, Media and Sport and to Ofcom (again), about the availability of ITV1, Ch4 & Ch5 to all viewers on whichever platform (Terrestial,Satellite or cable) they use after Analogue switch off. In the reply from dcms they refer to a submission from the BBC made in April of this year which puts forwrd the case for the need to ensure that the above 3 channels are (like the BBC) available Free to Air on all platforms. However dcms say that no decision has been reached yet by Government! Does any one know more about this submission? It seems that once again our Government is teetering on the brink before asking Mr Murdoch if he objects to Satelite viewers being able to watch the 5 main channels without having to get de-encryption kit fom SKY and being able to watch the main channels on whatever kit they chose!
