Why should we pay for a tv licence?
Closed

Have just read that the bbc are considering cutting back on programmes to save money!! Meaning they are looking at having nothing showing from 10.35pm until 6am. Are they going to cut the tv licence as well, i think not.

i would like to see the tv licence scraped and ads shown during shows or product placement that way they can earn there money like the rest of the channels and don't means i am paying for some thing that i only watch a few shows on.

"We are the only country in the world that has to pay a tv licence!"
Well that's guesswork as you couldn't be more wrong. Many countries have licences and advertising on all channels.

I don't watch a lot of programmes on the BBC, apart from Waking the Dead, New Tricks and wildlife/nature programmes. They are already axing Waking the Dead and that has regulars viewers of 9 million+. Yes, we know what the licence money is supposed to go towards (Eilish Blackford) below, but surely that is all the more reason for them to have adverts/sponsorships like other channels do. That way, we would maybe see a lot more really good programmes on the BBC.

I agree if the Beeb are going to cut back to save money then the license fee should be cut accordingly.

We are the only country in the world that has to pay a tv licence! Also we are only paying for the bbc, I don't see them giving us a rebate on our licences if they cut back on programmes,do away with the licence and we'll all watch ITV channel 4 five etc.They want it to be £200 per household and no free licences.I'd rather watch adverts than have to pay that!

I think we should be able to choose if we want the bbc channels, for what I pay for the tv licence, I would much rather put that towards getting sky, you have to subscribe to watch their channels, why should the bbc be any different

The tv licence works out of the year at about 40p a day.I know there is alot of rubbish on it,but what can you get for 40p now a days.A bar of chocolate,2 wham bars.If people cant afford too pay that,then they shouldn't have a tv in the first place.

Even though i did a topic asking if people preferred bbc programmes as there as no adverts i would be happy for them to have them if i didn;t have to pay for a licence - TOO much £145 last time i think and that's absolutely crazy they repeat programmes all the time now and not old ones the ones that were on earlier like eastenders (don't even want to watch it the first time around to be honest - give me hollyoaks with a few ad's thrown in!)
