It's odd that the Chairman of the BBC is making a convincing case for no licence fee.  No Royal Weddings? No Olympics? No Strictly?  No Gavin & Stacey?  Sign me up for that!

Also mentioned was Gary Lineker's comment about making the fee voluntary.  I agree.  Why the fcuk are we paying for a  jelly fish jug eared crisp eater to tell us what game we are about to watch?  I could do that.  Gizza job?

Sir David Clementi said putting the broadcaster's services behind a paywall would lessen its ability to "bring the country together".

Not everybody would be able to access the "live important moments we enjoy as a nation", like Royal weddings and Olympic successes

"Sitting behind a paywall, it would no longer be the place that brings the country together for the Strictly final, or Gavin & Stacey on Christmas Day...

I can't even remember the last time I watched the BBC.  Checking today's schedules the only thing worth watching is Good Omens which I watched ages ago on Amazon Prime!

Admittedly I did like His Dark Materials and I love Inside No. 9.  But aside from MOTD nothing much else I watch on a regular basis.

 

PS - I am looking forward to Killing Eve when it returns.

To put the cost into perspective.  

  • Licence Fee £157.50/annum
  • SKy Cinema + Entertainment  £50/annum  (with Now TV)
  • Amazon £80/annum
  • Netflix £72/annum  (Though I tend to just get a month @£6 every now and again)
