Ofcom fines Satellite Entertainment Ltd

Ofcom, the media regulator, fined Satellite Entertainment Ltd (SEL) who run Essex Babes, Northern Birds and Live XXX Babes £90,000.00 for failing to provide recordings of what was transmitted on 9 occasions. The fine is payable to HM Paymaster General.

SEL also lost editorial control of what they broadcast for 6 weeks by allowing another company to transmit using its license.

It seems SEL refused to provide recordings and frustrate Ofcom's regulatory process which Ofcom found unacceptable. SEL were fined as a breach of condition 11 of their license.
