ATVOD rules on adult services

UK video-on-demand regulator ATVOD has ruled that two adult services have breached statutory rules put in place to protect children. 

The regulator ruled that Daisy Rock UK and She Bang TV allowed under 18s to access content viewable on-demand by allowing free, unrestricted access to videos and images and by making full-length videos available to any visitor who paid a fee.

ATVOD said that the operator of Daisy Rock UK subsequently put its content out of reach of children, but had appealed with Ofcom against a separate ATVOD ruling that its service falls within the scope of the statutory rules.

The operator of She Bang TV failed to become fully compliant in accordance with a timetable set by ATVOD. The service provider has therefore been referred to Ofcom for consideration of a sanction.
