The most significant effect of the Act was to amend the Independent Broadcasting Authority Act 1973, giving the Independent Broadcasting Authority the power to provide a second television station. This began the process which would lead to the creation of Channel 4 in 1982.
It also made provision for the broadcasting of television programmes in Wales, and established the Broadcasting Complaints Commission.
