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?
Please read our consultation document below, and send us your views, by completing the online survey below, or sending us your views by Email: email@example.com or come to one of the public meetings listed below - you can register attendance at firstname.lastname@example.org
This survey is now closed.
