The BBC is reporting that the UK's communications regulatory agency, Ofcom, has expressed concern about the Beeb's plans to offer all its programming on-demand because of fears of undue commercial competition. The BBC's independent television competitors have complained in the past about its subsidized competition and, in the US, various commercial stations -- mostly radio -- have complained about the same. But this is interesting in that it comes from a regulator and, for the first time I believe, deals with distribution on new platforms.
