We understand the importance of broadcast licensing arrangements for the sector. As set out by the Prime Minister’s Mansion House Speech, we are seeking to strike a bespoke deal with the EU which would allow for mutual recognition of cross-border broadcasting post EU Exit. However, the final outcome will depend on exit negotiations. Our negotiating teams will continue to work at pace to ensure these are finalised.
The Government is committed to working with the broadcasting sector to understand their needs and concerns, and will continue focussing on negotiating the right future relationship with the EU over the coming months.
