Alex Mahon, Chief Executive of Channel 4, said: “We welcome the decision to prioritise reform of the media industry in the UK, which is long overdue. Securing prominence for public service television must be made a reality as soon as possible – every day without it damages viewers' ability to find the content they love and impacts a sector at the heart of Britain’s prosperous creative industries.

We also welcome legislation to regulate streamers on a level playing field with broadcast content. We call on politicians to ensure rapid passage of the Bill through Parliament, because we cannot afford as an industry and as a nation to delay the strengthening of our public service media sector any further.”
