I presume you’re referring to BritBox?I see the BBC have a streaming service where they make programmes with licence payer's money then sell them to licence payers. Genius.
In a word, no.The licence fee accounts for about £3.7 billion of the BBC’s annual budget. Is there enough additional advertising spend to fund that without seriously affecting the other broadcasters and netcasters too?
"It's become too feminised"?I think the TV licence should be scrapped and the BBC should find another system of funding. It used to be a fine institution, but there is nothing on it I want to watch, and even the radio annoys me now. Other radio stations annoy me more, but there are podcasts. I think being forced to buy the TV licence when you want to watch other channels is like being forced to buy The Guardian when you want to read The Mail or The Morning Star. It's become too feminised. It's lost most its good sport. I suspect a past government stuffed it by forcing it to buy programming from private companies. It made a lot of money for some of those companies but it hamstrung the BBC's own programme making capacity. The BBC could survive without the licence fee and it should do so.
Subscription. They can also sell overseas. They actually have a lot of IP and a strong brand they can exploit if they don't continue to damage them.What alternative to funding it do you propose... bearing in mind that commercial TV has been loosing a lot of advertising revenue for well over a decade now, so that's not really a viable model for the future.
I agree radio is a problem. However it is a bit weird they can put out free radio on money raised on watching television. I don't pay for television any more (because I don't watch it) but I am allowed to listen to the BBC's radio stations. I don't have to listen to any commercials. There is much greater variety of programmes on BBC radio than on the commercial radios, but it is difficult for commercial radios to compete.I'd be interested to know how this would apply to BBC radio?
