Procedures for handling appeals on scope and for imposing sanctions in relation to On-Demand Programme Services

Issued 11 February 2011

We consider that the new procedures proposed in the consultation are, with a few exceptions discussed below, reasonable. We believe that they will help all parties understand what will happen should there be a disagreement with the Association for Television on Demand Limited (ATVOD) over the scope of On Demand Programme Services (ODPS) and how Ofcom will apply sanctions for a contravention of ODPS regulatory requirements.

BT has an internal process for ensuring compliance with the regulatory requirements imposed on it when it acts as an ODPS Provider under Part 4A (Section 368A onward) of the Communications Act 2003 (Act).
