Those who have/may lose access to various channels/programmes?

Those in the industry who have/will lose their jobs?

Those who have investments in any affected channels?

The Government as trade/jobs are lost to other countries?

Is this yet more No-deal Brexit scaremongering?

Can you give us a list of channels that are going to disappear?

Nope, it's a factual thread not concerned with the pros and cons of staying in or leaving the EU.

So it's just the thread title that's scaremongering then.

Many channels that don't broadcast to the UK, but broadcast to other EU countries from the UK, have surrendered their Ofcom licenses and started broadcasting from other EU countries. Nevertheless, this has led to a loss of jobs and income for the UK.

Some that did broadcast to the UK from abroad eg TV5 Monde decided it wasn't worth the hassle and closed their UK TV feeds.
