A Future for Public Service Television

This chapter sets out the beliefs of the Voice of the Listener & Viewer (VLV). VLV believes that public service television should be universally available, available to all free at the point of use, and provide something for everyone, including impartial and accurate news and other high-quality content for the benefit of the whole of UK society. Ofcom was established to ensure that the needs of the citizen and consumer are met. These needs may differ but both are equally important. VLV also believes that increased competition alongside deregulation of broadcasting has led to an increase in the volume of more popular genres and a reduction in the mainstream provision of UK-specific content which benefits citizens.
