No Plans To Privatize Channel 4

UK Government denies privatization of Channel Four Television Corporation. A spokesperson for the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, which oversees broadcasting, said, “'There are no plans to privatise Channel 4.' Proposals to privatise Channel 4 are being considered by the UK Government once again in a move that could raise more than £1 billion for deficit reduction. The question of Channel 4 ownership is expected to be considered by George Osborne and the new Culture Secretary John Whittingdale as part of a shake-up of the main channels. Senior figures said plans to sell the state's 100% shareholding were being 'looked at' but 'have not progressed to a formal stage yet'.One source told the Financial Times: 'We are sounding people out.

No Plans To Privatize Channel 4

Lady Neville-Rolfe, a junior minister in the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, said, "There are no plans currently to remove the public-service conditions imposed on Channel 4 or to privatise it." There were reports last year that the Conservatives had drawn up plans to sell Channel Four Television Corporation but Vince Cable, blocked them. As the plans were understood to have involved the Treasury, a Conservative majority government could look to reopen the debate.
