Sky aims to take on BBC in local TV news
The BBC faces a fresh challenge to the licence fee as Sky explores the launch of its own local news service. The Daily Telegraph can disclose that the pay-tv giant has been lobbying Ofcom to open up local television news to new competition in an update to public service broadcasting regulations. Sky is developing plans for Sky News Local, which would build on its national rolling news channel. Ofcom is due to begin a review of public service broadcasting next month.
