Ofcom has announced that Channel 4's public service broadcasting licence will be renewed for a 10-year period following the expiry of the current licence at the end of 2014.

The licence will be for 10 years – its terms remain unchanged, with the exception that Ofcom has tripled Channel 4's quota for programmes produced outside England (i.e. in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) – from 3% per volume and spend, to 9% from 2020.
