Director-General: BBC could switch to voluntary subscription model

The Director-General of the BBC, Lord Hall, has admitted that the license fee could be scrapped with the broadcaster switching to a voluntary subscription model similar to Netflix.

With increasing amounts of choice when it comes to media and younger generations having grown up streaming on the internet, the BBC license fee looks increasingly outdated, especially given the increasing levels of criticism surrounding its lefty Londoncentric world view.

At the moment the compulsory license fee is guaranteed for a while, until 2027.

But as Lord Hall told MPs yesterday: “You could decide the BBC is a subscription service.

“It would be very, very different to the sort of BBC you have now, because you would be giving subscribers what they want, not the breadth of the population.

“I would argue that’s the wrong model for supporting the BBC.”

His intervention comes  as The Telegraph reveal plans for ‘outreach teams’ that will be ensuring over-75s are paying their license fee or prove they receive pension credit.

The BBC’s Director of Policy, Clare Sumner, told MPs: “We are recruiting a specific group of people who will pay support visits to this group and help them understand what the system is and help them apply. They will be a different cohort to people who enforce the licence fee.”

This ridiculous state of affairs can’t go on. Pensioners potentially being hassled whilst many others now favour scrapping the license fee altogether. Why should people who don’t watch the BBC be forced to continue paying for it?
