Read this: Tony Hall: household levy a very interesting idea

Summary: Tony Hall has suggested he is open to exploring the German household levy as a means of funding the BBC. The director general told The Andrew Marr Show that the licence fee has another decade of life, but repeated views in a Broadcast interview last week, explaining that reform is needed to the funding mechanism. This includes extending the licence fee to cover catch up viewing on iPlayer. Hall added that the household levy is a “very interesting idea”, but said he was unsure how it will work in practice. “There is a broad agreement that the licence fee needs to be reformed in some sort of way… it could be a household tax, I don’t know whether that works or not, ” the director general told Marr. Hall was speaking a day after John Whittingdale gave his first interview as culture secretary. - link
