The Independent Television Commission has withdrawn a proposal to alter its sports and listed events code to allow ITV, Channel 4, BBC 1 and BBC 2 to occasionally show extended coverage on their digital terrestrial or satellite channels, writes Tara Conlan.

The ITC pulled the amendment after receiving comments from broadcasters and sports governing bodies.

The consultation on revision to the code was launched in December and includes an update to incorporate European directive requirements. The new code will appear in the spring.
