More ATVOD decisions - one in three under appeal.

ATVOD has published two more scope determinations.  On 29 March 2011 it added Formula 1 Video and Telegraph TV to the list of services that it has decided are TV-like.  The Telegraph TV decision is being appealed to OFCOM, as are previous newspaper and magazine decisions against Sun Video, News of the World Video, Sunday Times Video Library and Elle TV.  In total seven of ATVOD's 22 published decisions to date are currently under appeal to OFCOM.

Meanwhile the Periodical Publishers Association has complained to ATVOD that the intention of the Audiovisual Media Services Directive is being ignored and that ATVOD is interpreting the implementing regulations in an unreasonable manner.
