RE: 17 years and counting
If the entire population refused to pay the license fee to whoever was trying to get it, then the Beeb would have to manage without it. The US has never had a licensing requirement for TV. The stations all use advertising revenue to run, except for Public Television stations. They raise funds locally by various methods.

Hello Frank, God help us if the Beeb went like ITV and the American system the Ads take up far to much time and the program content is rubbish, and then commercial TV buy up older BBC programs to enhance their program content, good old BBC must stay independent.

I agree Dave, the only way I watch commercial TV is mainly after recording it. I bought a Humax freeview recorder and view TV through that skipping through the adverts. A few years ago we subscribed to Sky TV paying about£40 a month. I thought that as we were paying the programs would free of adverts. How wrong was I there were longer breaks for adverts than on terrestrial commercial TV. Long live the beeb I say
