The Broadcasting Act 1996 (as amended) gives the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport the power to designate key sporting and other events as “listed events”, to ensure that such events are made available to all television viewers, particularly those who do not have subscription television. Ofcom publishes this list in its code of listed events, which I attach: https://www.ofcom.org.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0029/35948/ofcom_code_on_sport.pdf
