Press TV has always been critical of British policies dealing the UK administration a severe blow by providing its audience with an alternative viewpoint on the events in the Middle East and the West.
Ofcom finally made a questionable move and without offering a valid response to the Press TV CEO’s letters, it decided to revoke Press TV’s broadcasting license and removed the channel from the Sky platform on January 20.
What follows is just a handful of Press TV viewers reacting to the removal of the channel from the Sky platform:
Nimco: What do we except, Sky TV is owned by Rubert Murdoch, a known Zionist and Islamphobe. But the truth is stronger than hate, Press TV will prevail in the end.
Curly: why are they removing it? Because they don’t want people to know what really they are doing around the world, the death and destruction they cause, so they remove platforms like press TV. Cowards!!!
Hassan: One of the best sources of information in UK is press TV. Shame on UK
Sehrat: Press TV [is] No. 1 in freedom of speech and world peace.
Zaghum: So called democracy! (What about UK freedom of expression)!
Stephen: I am ashamed to admit am British as we pride ourselves on free speech and now that has been taken away from the people shame on Ofcom.
Zyre: Britain should not start banning news channels, nullifying its claim of “Freedom of Speech”. I don’t think there is any harm in letting the people know the other side of the stories.

Irene: As an adult I know which channel I wish to watch … a balanced news channel like Press TV. A channel where I get the news that I would have liked to get on sky but don’t. Come on Ofcom and give Press TV a chance to fill the “forms” correctly. The voice of the voiceless is Press TV.
Syed Raheel: Press TV is the source from where we get the in depth insight of what’s happening in Iran and its political views. I do not rely on BBC and Sky as we all know how corrupted and controlled are these organizations.
Zahid: Press TV doesn’t need to do propaganda it views the facts!

Governments need to leave well enough alone, let them people get their views from many different places and let us decide for ourselves.
Akintunde: I wonder why UK government is still showing hatred to a country that has no record of attacking any other nation, but God is always behind his own people, one day the truth shall prevail.
Angelo: If they remove it from the sky platform I will cancel my subscription.

Sayed Shahabuddin: Britain is against freedom of speech. They should let all press channels to have space to work without fear.
