Since publication of Ofcom’s Prominence recommendations, the government and Ofcom have worked closely together and engaged with industry to fully understand the impact of Ofcom’s proposals. This work is ongoing and the government remains committed to act on Ofcom’s prominence recommendations, including through legislation.

It is important to ensure that prominence, and the balance of benefits and obligations, support a sustainable future for public service broadcasting (PSB). These issues are also being considered as part of the government’s strategic review of PSB, where we will set out next steps later this year.
