UK eyes Ofcom regulation for Netflix and other streamers

A UK culture minister has suggested that Netflix could be brought under Ofcom regulation, as apparent tensions with the streamer escalate.

The starting point for the dispute stems from the release of the latest season of The Crown, with culture secretary Oliver Dowden saying that Netflix should add a ‘health warning’ to show that the show is fictitious. Netflix rebuffed this suggestion, and said that “we have always presented The Crown as a drama.”
