If there are now two BBCs, why pay a licence fee?main
We clicked on a link and found this:
We’re sorry but this site is not accessible from the UK as it is part of our international service and is not funded by the licence fee. It is run commercially by BBC Worldwide, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the BBC, the profits made from it go back to BBC programme-makers to help fund great new BBC programmes. You can find out more about BBC Worldwide and its digital activities at www.bbcworldwide.com.
Do you need further help?
Actually, no. If the BBC is now two organisations, public and commercial, the case for maintaining the licence fee is fatally weakened.
