International UK Culture Secretary Lays Out Why The Government Is Regulating The Streamers

Streamer regulation has been a hot topic in the UK for years now and the government is acting. In an exclusive op-ed for Deadline, UK Culture Secretary Lucy Frazer explains this week’s decision to regulate the likes of Netflix, Disney+ and Amazon Prime Video. “If we want our public service broadcasters to continue holding their own in 50 years time, we need a rulebook that allows them to innovate and compete,” she writes, delivering her first comments on broadcasting since taking on the role last month.
