Ha, ha ha. About time the lefty, London, media types got a bit of agro in their lives instead of living of the
License payers.
After all if they don't like it they could always stack shelfs for ?7:50 an hour.

Freeview 2024?

People can always blame it on Brexit.
I can't imagine a time in this world where the UK public will ever be free from having to pay that dreadful BBC it's bribe/ licence fee.

It's hit the news again recently. My old Mum has just qualified to receive a free T.V. licence, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that they want to whip it away. Utter B?$*@#d's.

We will still need Freeview in 2042

I think the comment from Nik above may have been about perceived regulations in the U.K.?
The BBC has to keep to a charter (or whatever they're calling it nowadays?).Since the BBC is funded by the
Public paying a license fee, the BBC have to offer types of programming and services that in reality very, very few people watch or use. Since the BBC doesn't really have to try and be any better than it has been accustomed to operating as its always had free money given to it by the Government and always will then
Competitors like ITV and Channel 4 don't really feel the need to try too hard either, so the 5 main channels and their offshoot channels become a land of staleness as they assume everyone who isn't happy will just go and watch something online. The same mentality is happening in U.K. retailing. Shops ain't even trying
anymore as they all assume folk will order online, hence hastening more store closures while they blame
high rents and Amazon etc.

Selling more and more frequency space off to the mobile phone companies at every opportunity doesn't help
broadcasters for traditional T.V. either.
Innovation across all forms of media seems to be a thing of the past and is now effectively dead.
