A quick search on the forum will advise that this is an OFCOM requirement to allow Sky channels to broadcast age-limited programs before the watershed.

Your complaint is with Ofcom, the industry regulator, for requiring "Mandatory Daytime Protection" on any broadcast channel that wants to show age-restricted content during the day.

All TV platforms that carry the affected channels - mainly Sky-branded - are required to impose this.
