Private entertainment channel broadcast in sweden from the UK. The programmes are focused on series and games. In spring 2005, the Swedish Broadcasting Commission considered two jurisdiction cases relating to the television channels TV3, ZTV and Kanal 5. The three channels are registered in the United Kingdom by OFCOM, but the Swedish Broadcasting Commission found that Kanal 5 ought to come under Swedish jurisdiction. The Swedish Broadcasting Commission formally requested that OFCOM review its position regarding Kanal 5. In respect of TV3 and ZTV, however, the Swedish Broadcasting Commission concluded that Viasat Broadcasting Ltd ought to be considered as the broadcaster responsible for these channels’ programmes. As the company is established in the United Kingdom, Swedish jurisdiction does not apply.
