VoD services becoming more accessible, says ATVOD

ATVODVoD services are becoming more accessible, with public service broadcasters leading the way, according to a new survey by ATVOD.

Subtitled programmes for those with impaired hearing are now being provided on at least 18 UK VOD services according to the survey.

Channel 5, ITV and STV all now provide subtitles for more than 70% of the on demand programming available through their websites, with commercial VOD services Curzon and Viasat coming close to matching that performance, said ATVOD.

ATVOD (the Authority for Television On Demand) is the independent co-regulator for the editorial content of UK video on demand services.
