BBC licence fee set ‘to be axed’

The BBC television fee is set to be axed following a government review.

The White Paper found viewing habits have changed a fair bit and that it’s time for a change.

Ministers will set up a timetable to find a viable alternative in time for when the BBC’s current royal charter expires in 2027, the Metro reported.

“Technology has revolutionised how, when and where audiences can access and watch content,” the document says.

“An increasing number of households are choosing not to hold a TV licence, as fewer people choose to watch live TV or other activities that require a licence.

“Should this trend continue as expected there are clear challenges on the horizon to the sustainability of the licence fee.”
