MUMBAI: There will be no changes in the ownership rules affecting
UKs principal independent broadcaster ITV, UK broadcast
sector regulator Ofcom said.
According to the prevalent rules a newspaper group with more
than a fifth of national newspaper share cannot hold a Channel
3 licence or a stake in a Channel 3 licensee that is greater
than 2 per cent. Also, certain persons are disqualified from
holding broadcast licences generally while certain others
are not allowed to hold certain kinds of broadcast licences.
The rules also say that some persons may hold broadcast licences
only if Ofcom has determined that it is appropriate for them
to do so.
