BBC and other major commissioning organisations[edit]

How about adding a group like this? It seems to complement the lists of channels.

Perhaps we can have a cut-off based on viewing figures.

Overlap[edit]

There seems to be a great deal of overlap between this template and {{Media_in_the_United_Kingdom}}. How should we choose which article belongs in which template, or both? --Hroðulf (or Hrothulf) (Talk) 08:49, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

In my view this template needs a lot of work. It strikes me as particualrly bizarre that there are no channels included. I would like to see this template expanded consderably to contain the majority of UK television channels, with collapsible groups used to keep things compact. For me the TV links contained in the Media in the United Kingdom template are useful and should not be removed as they enable readers to move easily between topics such as UK media regulators, companies, regions etc and the principal TV articles.

I would also like to see the Template:Television in England merged into this template, television in England and the UK as a whole are too closely connected to be split into separate templates. In my view there is no good reason why Template:Television in Scotland and Template:Television in Wales can't be merged here either. Rangoon11 (talk) 11:41, 21 June 2011 (UTC)
