Timebands and Classification Review

 

The BSA is considering whether any changes should be made to timebands and classification labels on free-to-air television and we want your views. 

Timebands have been used for decades to protect free-to-air viewers from unsuitable content. But the way we watch television has changed -  we don’t always watch at a fixed time - we record and watch later, and parental locks are now available on free-to-air television.  Given these changes, are all of the timebands still relevant and useful?

We have different labels on pay television (SKY) and free-to-air television.  Should they be the same?
