Talk:Swedish Educational Broadcasting Company


This is an intriguing stub and I would love to see the article expanded. Given that Sweden has another, larger public broadcaster (SVT) how does SU fit in with it? Is educational programming not part of SVT's remit? Or is SU responsible for a specific kind of educational broadcasting of the kind that used to be made by the Open University in the UK: lecture-type programmes aimed at people enrolled on a particular course of study? Whatever the role of SU, I feel like some mention of it should be made on the SVT page to explain where SVT stops and SU starts in their coverage of the broadcasting landscape.

Oh my, I know I am late to the party. I thought I could clarify here, and when I have time, and if I remember, also update the article. From my understanding SVT and UR are very integrated. The SVT channel that broadcast children's tv during the day "Barnkanalen" broadcasts UR in the evening, at least they used to when I was younger. Furthermore, a lot of programmes, especially on Barnkanalen are jointly produced between SVT and UR. UR's principal studios is also housed in the same building as SVT. And to answer your question better: SVT and UR are both Public Service companies. Think of SVT as the TV station and broadcasting company, and UR as a production company that produces media for SVT to air on their channels. I hope this clears it up! @Credulity Very Fantastic Dude (talk) 21:54, 4 March 2021 (UTC)
