Under the new BBC Charter and Agreement, Ofcom's role is to hold the BBC’s performance and editorial standards to account, and also to regulate the competitive effects of its services.

The unitary BBC board will be responsible for governing and running the Corporation. The National Audit Office will be responsible for the ensuring the BBC delivers value for money, while the Charter itself – and the licence fee – remain matters for Government.

Ofcom will regulate the content standards of the BBC’s television, radio and on-demand programmes. The BBC will handle complaints about its content in the first instance, with Ofcom overseeing that process and handling appeals through a transparent process. Whenever required, we will step in.

BT has been hit with a £42m fine from telecoms regulator Ofcom and has set aside £300m to repay providers for delays in installing high-speed lines.

Ofcom said the fine was the largest it had ever handed down.

It found BT's Openreach division had cut compensation payments to telecoms providers for delays in installing the lines between early 2013 and late 2014.

Openreach chief executive Clive Selley said the firm "apologised wholeheartedly"for the mistakes.

The investigation found BT had broken rules put in place to counter its "significant market power" by cutting the payments.

Sky TV to go satellite dish-free in 2018 - BBC News

So, full parallel running between Satellite and Internet is upon us ...... just how long before Satellite becomes redundant for carrying TV and Radio?
Evening all,

I've spent the most of this evening setting up my new Vu+ Zero receiver after my Openbox finally packed in lat weekend. I'm slowly getting to grips with it but there's one annoyance that I can't seem to avoid an I wondered if anyone knew of a way of stopping it - Basically once it finishes a satellite scan and brings up a list of newly added channels, as soon as I press 'Exit' on the remote control and return to TV, it will move the motor back to the channel I was watching before (on another satellite). Really frustrating when I've scanned 30W for example and without having a chance to check out the channels, it starts moving back to 42E!

Am I doing something wrong? Is there a button I need to press on the remote to make it 'hold' the satellite I've just scanned or perhaps a plugin that prevents this from happening?

Also, slightly different to my original question - I've only now discovered that the Vu+ Zero does not have a blind scan function whereas the...
