What will be on the box? Lords question BBC and Channel 4

27 November 2012

On Tuesday 27 November, in the sixth evidence session of their inquiry into media convergence, the Lords Communications Committee will put questions to two public services broadcasters (PSBs), the BBC and Channel 4.

The Committee will explore the challenges and opportunities brought about by convergence for PSBs. In particular, they will consider how convergence will affect the content we see on our screens, who makes that content, and how it is delivered to us, as well as ultimately, what the implications of all of this will be for the evolving regulation of PSBs and the wider media world to which they belong.
