Our Chief Executive, Shuja Khan has issued a statement following today’s House of Lords Communications and Digital Committee report looking at the future of broadcasting. This follows his evidence session with the Committee, where he discussed the prevalence of Digital Terrestrial Television in the UK.
Arqiva’s Chief Executive Officer Shuja Khan said:
“Today’s report from the Lords Communications and Digital Committee addresses the hugely important question of the future of broadcasting.
“I was pleased to give evidence to the Committee’s inquiry about the prevalence of Digital Terrestrial Television in the UK. We welcome their acknowledgement of the continued significance of DTT for millions of people across the country.
“Research shows that the public wants to see continued support for DTT, which is particularly important for vulnerable groups, including older people, as well as those in rural areas.
“That’s why we recently launched the Broadcast 2040+ campaign, to secure a commitment from Government on safeguarding these critical services for the long term.
“We look forward to continuing to work with the Committee in the months ahead as they build on the outcomes of their inquiry.”
