It's a balancing game. The commercial PSBs obviously don't offer their linear channels advert-free but they can offer the same content advert-free for a monthly streaming fee.

So they may be keen as it could encourage subscriptions as well as generating more revenue.

Alternatively, the greater supply of advertising time may send rates and viewers down.

Fair enough, but (to me) a change of leader does not automatically mean a change of Government. YMMV.
