BBC Charter Renewal


The last day of the parliamentary session (the new one starts next Wednesday with the Queen's Speech) saw the publication of proposals from the government to overhaul how the BBC is managed and funded. From now on those watching BBC programmes on-demand will be required to have a TV Licence. Having said that I am pleased that the Licence Fee will not rise above inflation until 2021-22. I also think there is some merit in the idea that Ofcom will now have much more teeth in its role as the independent regulator of the BBC.  The White Paper is found here.
