Evidencing the role of Public Service Broadcasting

Steemers Parliament

On 2nd April, 2019 CMCI’s Professor Jeanette Steemers gave evidence to the House of Lords Select Communications Committee on Public Service Broadcasting and Video on Demand. The Committee was calling upon academic experts as part of its inquiry investigating whether there is a future for public service broadcasting in the context of the rising popularity of video on demand services. Amongst the lines of questioning, the Committee wanted to better understand the changing viewing habits of younger generations, and whether public service broadcasters’ obligations and privileges are still appropriate.

Congratulations to Jeanette for also being appointed Chair of the Steering Committee of Users for the Young Audiences Content Fund, launched on 1st April by the BFI.
