We in the UK pay for the BBC willingly because it is worth the price
No it isn't. I'd rather not pay the fee at all. The only BBC show I've watched since paying my fee is Top Gear. That's once a week and it doesn't last the whole year. On top of that, the BBC pimps the show off to stations like Dave and Blighty. How is that worth my money. The only good thing about the fee is that some of it goes towards Channel 4 who do actually produce content I want and watch but even then, I watch most of that on 4oD anyway. The license fee is antiquated and should be abolished. Let's see how the BBC far when they have to balance their books.
We want to create puppets that pull their own strings. - Ann Marion
