Channel Four privatisation: Advertisers voice concerns about damaged competitiveness

… particularly if sold to ITV or Sky. The FT [£] reports

“Isba [Incorporated Society of British Advertisers] also said there was a “substantial risk” that Channel 4 programming appealing to a young and diverse audience would be “diluted and challenged over time” in private sector hands.”

The FT article also mentions Oliver Dowden’s determination to press ahead though. Usual stuff about why a granny in The Red Wall should underwrite the investment needed to compete with Netflix, etc etc.
