    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.

    Also interesting to note that the BBC terminated their contract with A.P, Associated Press this week in favour of the AFP Agence France Presse, only time will tell whether or not their politically biased reporting of world events will change as a consequence

    Why on earth would people stop watching the BBC as the result of a change in the Regulatory regime?

    We need an insight into your thoughts, here.
