Hopefully, in two years time, the BBC's tax on TV viewers will be a thing of the past. The corporation has decended from being the formost educational channel to simply chasing the ratings and anti government/anti brexit bias.Unfortunately, at the moment, the viewer has to pay to watch the increasingly large number of 'repeats' being shown daily.
Shame we can't repeat the license and have, ( for the time being) have to renew each year in order to watch a load of old cr*p and reallity shows.

Thankfiully, in two year's time, the BBC's tax on viewers will be a thing of the past.
Since the government's review on how the corporation is funded, there has been nothing but anti-government/anti brexit bias from them. What was once a respected, reliable news source, has rapidly gone down hill - you can't even trust their 'red button' newsservice (page 160) to be explicit and geographically correct.

Reluctant payer:

FYI, AIUI, the "licence fee" is frozen for the next two years and isn't due to end until 2027 under these proposals.
