Die unzähligen TV und Radiosender sowie die umfangreiche Webseite sollen massiv reduziert, sowie die Zwangs-Rundfunkgebühren ersatzlos gestrichen werden. Finanzieren soll sich die BBC dann wie Netflix über ein Abo.

Claims were made on Sunday that No 10may be preparing a new onslaught on the BBC with a threat to scrap the television licence fee and turn it into a subscription service.
The Sunday Times quoted a senior source as saying that the broadcaster could be forced to sell off most of its radio stations in a “massive pruning back” of its activities.
The source told the paper that Boris Johnson was “really strident” on the need for serious reform. They said there would be a consultation on replacing the licence fee with a subscription model, adding: “We will whack it.”
The paper said that the number of BBC television channels could also be reduced, the website scaled back and stars banned from cashing in on well-paid second jobs.
