Are the PSB catch up services given prominence over other providers on Sky?

It's been suggested that Sky promote their own services above PSB content with regards to catch up services, so there's been a call for a change in the law to reflect changes in technology as more people watch TV via VOD.

It's also been said that they don't do this.

Can someone with Sky please let me know which is correct?

Thanks.

When entering catch up on Sky Q the BBC iPlayer is listed first followed by ITV Hub , Channel 4 and My 5 how much prominence do they want.

By putting them first (PSB is Public Service Broadcaster).

Thanks for checking, so it appears that Sky aren't putting their own channels first.

Maybe they mean that they want to change the legislation to make this arrangement formal, because as it stands there would be no legal obstacles to Sky giving their own channels more prominence at any time in the future.

I have an interest in broadcasting.

If you don't, that's fine, there are lots of other subjects that you may find more interesting to read about on the site
