UK regulator Ofcom’s latest Broadcast Bulletin names and shames another batch of so called ‘Adult’ channels for assorted breaches of its broadcast rules.
Northern Birds (Sky channel 935), Essex Babes (Sky channel 936), Sportxxx Girls (Sky channel 940) and Livexxx Babes (Sky channel 942) all transmit interactive daytime chat and ‘adult chat’ advertising content, and – in Ofcom’s words – show “female presenters [who] dress and behave in a sexually provocative way while encouraging viewers to contact the premium rates telephone numbers.
Ofcom, in particular, noted that the channels made frequent on-screen references to a website (bluebird.tv), as well as highlighting premium rate telephone/text numbers.
Since Sept 1 2010 these channels have operated under licences, and rules, that cover long-form teleshopping services.
