Oh, No! Another state aid investigation…
…digital switch in UK questioned…

A “full inquiry” into UK Channel 4’s license fee funding was announced (Wednesday April 2) by the EC Competition office, answering a complaint by an unnamed commercial broadcaster. Who might that be?

Competition commissioner Neeley Kroes said she needs to“…make sure that any state support does not distort competition unduly.” At question is whether or not Channel 4 can receive license fee funding for the costs of digital switchover. Under EU rules state aid for broadcasting is OK so long as it funds public service programming. (JMH)
