BSkyB sets repeats bar

Satellite broadcaster BSkyB has increased the minimum amount of new programming which must be broadcast by channels on its Electronic Programme Guide (EPG).

In a letter to broadcasters, BSkyB said that from 1 July 2008, it would “only provide an EPG listing to television channels and radio stations which broadcast no less than 6 hours of non-repeating programming in each 24-hour period”. It further required “no less than 24 hours of non-repeating programming in each seven day period and no less than 50 hours of non-repeating programming in each 30 day period”.
