BBC’s commercial activities

Postby kevin » Fri Dec 11, 2009 8:19 pm

I'm sure (with a question mark) that the BBC claim that BBC worldwide is seperate from the BBC and the BBC doesn't get any income from it's commercial activities.

If I remember right, then WTF is this

8. In some cases, the BBC’s commercial activities generate profits that can then be used to supplement the BBC’s guaranteed licence fee income of over £3.2 billion per annum. In 2007/08, for example, BBC Worldwide made a profit of £118 million. Ofcom reports that BBC Worldwide’s net contribution to the BBC in 2007/08 amounted to £75 million in programme investment plus a £50 million general dividend.1 The BBC estimates that BBC Worldwide will generate profits of £200 million by 2012/13.
Public ownership has helped the BBC’s commercial activities to make a strong contribution
9. Thanks to its public ownership, BBC Worldwide has been able to make a strong contribution to the PSB system. Like Channel 4, which is also free from external shareholders, BBC Worldwide has been able to return its profits to the BBC to invest in public service content

THE BBC is beyond the pale in securing a higher licence fee(£145.50 and rising fast !!!), which is a tax on receiving live broadcasts not on owning a a TV.

It should have accepted that it is a public service provider and does not have to compete against the commercial channels.

The increasing globalisation of the BBC suggests that there is only one way for it and that is to become a commercial provider as it is around the globe (BBC America ,BBC Canada ,BBC India etc where you pay a voluntary subscription fee ,as part of a package and in some counties there's even adverts) and do away with the licence fee.

The impact of the BBC (on commercial broadcasters and the new technology they have to invest in to compete against others) is not necessary with the enforcement by law for its funding by taxation. The enforcement of this protectionism for the BBC by the UK Government is amazing and has greatly reduce commercial broadcasters' ability to compete. Therefore, it's fundamental we have a competition policy and not a protectionism policy for the BBC.

How in a modern economic and democratic society can this Stone Age enforcement of taxation (licence fee) to fund the BBC magically survive?

Time for this gravy train they have had for so long to come to a End
