Culture Secretary Nicky Morgan said broadcasters who “do not remain relevant will find themselves left behind by viewers”, but has denied launching an “attack on the BBC.”
Speaking in central London, Ms Morgan said “public service broadcasting is too important to allow it to become a historic relic, like Blockbuster”, referring to the decline of the video rental franchise.
She said the “pace” of change in the broadcasting industry “is fast and it’s only going to get faster.”
