Service providers must pay a fee to ATVOD in relation to each On Demand Programme Service they provide and will receive invoices with respect to each notified service. The fees charged by ATVOD are the subject of a public consultation each year and are approved by Ofcom.
The structure and level of the fees for the year to 31 March 2013 was the subject of a public consultation which closed on 14 March 2012. Details of the consultation are available in the News & consultations section of this website.
On 29 March 2012 Ofcom approved retention of the progressive three band fee structure based on the turnover of the service provider, and three concessionary rates for non-commercial, micro scale and small scale providers, with a 3.58% reduction in the level of fees in each band and for each concessionary rate. A summary of the 2012-13 fee tariff is published on this page along with a full statement on 2012-13 fees.
Service providers will be charged the Super A Rate unless they demonstrate that they are eligible for a lower rate, or for a concesionary rate. Application forms for Rate A, Rate B and the three concessionary rates are published on this page.
ATVOD will continue to work with members of the Industry Forum to develop apropriate fee arrangements for future years. Minutes of the working party established for this purpose are published on this page.
