| NEWS | New Report - 5.5 million premises across the UK will be without high-speed broadband connection in 2040
As a partner of the Broadcast 2040+ campaign’s coalition, we’re concerned about the findings from EY's report. With 5.5 million UK households projected to not be connected to high-speed broadband by 2040, safeguarding broadcast services is imperative. Let's ensure access to vital programming for all, especially for vulnerable groups like the elderly, low-income and fixed-income households, and people with mental or physical disabilities. As you know, these are the communities the campaign is trying to support by calling for the protection of broadcast services.

| NEWS | Old Sky receivers to become obsolete
First generation Sky boxes will finally become redundant next year, after Sky confirmed to customers that it will be making major technical changes to its service next year.

•   Further standard definition (SD) channels on Sky will close in 2024.
•   Broadcast parameters will change meaning older boxes will no longer receive services
This follows the BBC’s decision to close all of its standard definition channels in January. Viewers hoping that their older Sky receivers will continue to receive service other channels will be disappointed. Sky has indicated these receivers will become obsolete during 2024. It’s been writing letters to customers still using an older box.  This will affect subscribers in both the UK and the Republic of Ireland with any of the first generation, non-HD Sky receivers.
Sky+HD and Sky Q boxes are unaffected, and will continue to receive satellite TV channels, although Sky+HD boxes don’t have access to the interactive and streaming services offered by Sky Q.
| NEWS | Lobby your local MP - Developers and TV Systems

In order to help us lobby Government and Ofcom to try to stop building developers from de-specifying TV Systems from new developments, we’d like as many members as possible to lobby their local MP on this matter. This has proved an effective means of opening channels of communication in the past, so we’re keen to try again.

In order to help this, we’ve prepared a letter template that you can adapt and send to your local MP. You can include an example of a local development that you know has no TV system being installed – the part that’s current in italics, or remove that section if you don’t want to give a specific example.
