Broadcasting Policy

We work closely with stakeholders to ensure that the UK has a fair and competitive market for broadcasting industries.

Broadcasting Technology

We have a close working relationship with the UK professional broadcasting equipment and consumer electronics industries.
We are responsible for companies covering all aspects of the broadcast chain (from capturing an image on camera to display in the home or the cinema). We are also responsible for the broadcasting side of the consumer electronics sector - television sets, digital television adaptors (set-top boxes), digital radios, video recording technology, and so on.

Digital Television

The UK is the world leader in digital television. Our broadcasters, manufacturers and retailers have put the UK at the forefront of a revolution that offers more choice and a better quality viewing experience. We work with the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and others to ensure that everyone can have a greater choice of affordable digital TV options.
