The Authority for Television On Demand (ATVOD), which co-regulates UK video-on-demand services with Ofcom is to reduce its fee tariff by an across the board 3.58%.
The new tariff, already approved by Ofcom, retains the progressive banded structure first adopted for 2011-12 (which includes concessionary rates for micro-scale, small-scale and non-commercial service providers).
The is also a concessionary rate of £96 for non-commercial service providers and concessionary rates of £145 and £193 for commercial service providers with turnover below £50,000 and £100,000 respectively. A cap of £25,000 has been placed on the total fees paid by any single provider.
ATVOD had previously come under some criticism over the structure of its fees. It is currently the subject of a statutory review by Ofcom.
