Read this: BBC sport and online news to be cut as Red Button services face axe

Summary: The BBC is already facing costs of 700m after agreeing a deal with the government in July to finance licence fees for over-75s. The BBC is expected to set out its final budget proposals - with savings predicted to amount to 550m - in spring 2016. Drama is the only part of the BBC's television output likely to be protected but the rest of TV content is expected to face cuts of more than 10m.
