Given the recent press coverage concerning shows such as Richard & Judy, Saturday Kitchen and the more recent decision by ITV to independently audit its Premium Rate Services (PRS), BT believes it is essential that industry and ICSTIS work together to urgently identify solutions. BT hopes that these will both protect consumers and hopefully restore confidence in the PRS industry.
BT is supportive of this consultation and is pleased to see that ICSTIS has identified changes that are practical. Whilst we understand that this is primarily an issue for broadcasters and service providers, BT (specifically BT agilemedia) will be happy to work with industry to help identify and implement solutions.
