The Commercial Broadcasters Association (COBA) is the UK industry body for digital, cable and satellite broadcasters and on-demand services. Its members include major non-public service broadcasters, as well as niche services.
COBA works with regulators, policy makers and other stakeholders in the UK to champion the interests of its members and to promote the value they bring both creatively and economically to the UK.

COBA’s day-to-day work is carried out through a series of committees, most notably the Policy Committee, which are open to all members.
