UK media regulator Ofcom has reportedly received a complaint from Education Digital Management Limited (EDML)—which controls programming for the government-backed Teachers' TV channel—over BSkyB's intention to change its electronic programme guide (EPG) position.
According to Broadcastnow.co.uk, Sky wants to move the channel from its current documentaries slot into an expanded specialist genre as part of the satellite broadcaster's EPG revamp.
Broadcastnow.co.uk said EDML had complained that the repositioning broke Sky's obligations, though a Sky spokesman denied that. "Sky provides Electronic Programme Guide services on fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory terms. We are confident that we have fulfilled all regulatory obligations in respect of Teacher's TV and we look forward to demonstrating this to Ofcom," said the spokesman.
