20.2. Neither party may initiate legal action until the above process has been completed unless either party has reasonable cause to do so to avoid damage to its business or to protect or preserve any right of action it may have.

This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties concerning the subject matter of this Agreement and supersedes all previous arrangements, commitments, understandings and agreements between the parties concerning the subject matter hereof. Each party acknowledges that, in entering into this Agreement, it does not rely on and shall have no remedies in respect of any statement, representation, warranty or assurance (whether made innocently or negligently) that is not set out expressly in this
21.2. Agreement. Nothing in this clause shall act to exclude or limit either party’s liability to the other with respect to fraudulent misrepresentations.

THE BROADCAST PARTNER SERVICE
The Broadcast Partner intends to use the UKRP Service to provide a Radio Station service which will be delivered via the Radio Portal and the Internet to Connected TV devices.
When viewers access the assigned LCN, they are directed to the Radio Portal containing audio-visual content provided by the Broadcast Partner.
The Broadcast Partner will need to provide additional components to complete the functionality it requires, including, but not limited to:
- The radio station audio stream URL’s in the agreed technical format
- Textual information related to the radio service
- High-quality images for display on TV screens, in the agreed formats
- Regional & National radio services are eligible to update TV images on a monthly basis, as part of the Service offering
- Monthly images updates are not included as part of the Service offering for Community & Local radio services.
- Community & Local radio service TV images may be updated on a per-occasion basis at the agreed rates as shown on the UK Radio Portal website.
- Images for display on the UKRP website and/or other UKRP service platforms, in the agreed formats
- Provide UKRP with Advance Notice of no less than 2 Business Days of any likely demand peaks
- Operational and Technical contacts in accordance with this Agreement, and as outlined in Schedule 4, and may be updated from time to time
THE UKRP SERVICE
This schedule outlines the Service Specification for the UKRP Service which briefly comprises a HbbTV & MHEG Service.
UKRP will need to provide additional components to complete the functionality it requires, including, but not limited to:
- Operational and Technical contacts in accordance with this Agreement, and as outlined in Schedule 4, and may be updated from time to time
II. UKRP APPLICATION
The UKRP Application and Service is provided in two distinct parts:
i) the provision of the UKRP Broadcast Application which consists of components delivered via the broadcast network
ii) the provision of the UKRP IP Application which includes components, (e.g. images) sourced from the Broadcast Partner, and delivered via the public Internet
2.2 Minimum requirements: device compliance and connectivity
The UKRP Service cannot deliver the UKRP Application unless viewers use a Compliant Device which is connected to the public Internet and receiving channels broadcast on the DTT Platform via an aerial (“Connected Compliant Device”). Further information on the connectivity requirements are included below.
The Compliant Device must be connected to the Internet via either a wired Ethernet connection to the home router or connected to the home WiFi network – once connected the Compliant Device becomes a Connected Compliant Device.
The Connected Compliant Device must have been correctly configured in accordance with the manufacturer installation specifications and have obtained an IP address in order to connect to the Internet.
For guidance only (as UKRP is not providing streamed content as part of this service): Since the Broadcast Partner’s service is to include streamed audio, the Internet service level at the premises should be capable of sustaining a minimum of 2Mbit/s to the Connected Compliant Device in order to ensure the Streamed Content and associated components are accessible. The quality of the Streamed Content will potentially be affected by:
- Other Internet-using devices in the end-users premises consuming bandwidth along with the Connected Compliant Device
- Bandwidth throttling by the ISP
- Performance quality of the WiFi solution (if this is being used as the router-to-Connected Compliant Device delivery method) for streaming video and its susceptibility to any other radio frequency spectrum noise from other devices in the vicinity.
2.3 Handoff Interface Points to the Broadcast Partner
The handoff interface points are:
Delivery point of the UKRP Broadcast App components to the Relevant Multiplex
UKRP will ensure that the UKRP Broadcast App components are linked to each Enabled Channel on the Relevant Multiplex with the associated connectivity. This will be monitored 24/7 by UKRP and its contracted service delivery suppliers.
Delivery point of the UKRP App from UKRP to the public Internet
UKRP will provide multiple redundant availability zones when the UKRP App is hosted in the public cloud. As the service is then dependent on the ISPs to deliver the service, UKRP cannot take further responsibility.
III. UKRP SERVICE DELIVERY AND REPORTING
Monitoring of the UKRP Service will be undertaken by UKRP in conjunction with the relevant MCR for the relevant DTT Multiplex. The staff will provide technical monitoring, incident support and fault diagnosis for the UKRP service and act as the central operational, communications and management facility.
The Broadcast Partner will notify UKRP by telephone as soon as reasonably practicable of any breakdown or other impairment of which they become aware which is, or is likely to lead to, a Service Outage.

3.2 Planned Maintenance
UKRP operates a routine maintenance policy, following manufacturers’ recommended advice for work on equipment, around its facilities. Additionally, work may be needed for a number of reasons; such as emergency corrective works to protect the UKRP Services, infrastructure expansion, security patches/upgrades and service changes. Therefore, from time to time, it is necessary to carry out work that may affect the HbbTV and MHEG service.
UKRP will provide the Broadcast Partner with prior written notice of such planned maintenance in accordance with clause 4.5.2 of the Agreement.
In addition to the terms used in the definitions in Schedule 1 of this Agreement, the following terms are used in this Schedule 3:
