[EXTRACT]

UK broadcasters are pushing toward a mid-2035 terrestrial TV switch-off in favour of a streaming-only future. They’ve shown little or no interest in maintaining terrestrial TV in any form beyond this date, citing costs. However, over on the continent, broadcasters are looking at 5G Broadcast as a way of migrating to streaming while maintaining much of the current terrestrial transmitter network to deliver that service. In the long term, 5G Broadcast would use the 470-608 MHz band, if the 608+ MHz band (n71) was re-farmed for mobile use.

He might not have a choice.

How so? None of the PSB operators can unilaterally switch off linear broadcasts. That would require legislation, which is going to be Starmer’s purview for some time to come.

Just for balance, I attended the Great Yorkshire Show just under two weeks ago as a guest of a friend of mine, who currently works (part-time) as a Special Advisor at the Department for Science, Innovation & Technology (he worked at the DCMS until recently), and he attends the ITU meetings, and has been a speaker at the World Telecommunication Development Conference and the Mobile World Conference (this info is to validate his Industry knowledge and experience), and I asked him if he believed that the U.K. would still be broadcasting TV as it currently does, or would there be a "switch off" in 2035?

His response was "as we do it now"…
