The BBC have had a freeze on their licence for some years now and as they rely on most of the fee to give them the money to make programmes, will they be able to keep up!
Here is an extract from their web site:
"The fee you pay provides a wide range of TV, radio and on-line content, as well as developing new ways to deliver it to you. All of this content – and the television channels, radio stations and on-line spaces where audiences can find it – is paid for by the licence fee, allowing BBC's UK services to remain free of advertisements and independent of shareholder and political interest. The Government has now frozen the fee at £145.50 until the end of the current BBC Charter period in 2016."
I can thoroughly understand people trying to save money, as until the Government put a stop to it, the licence was rising every year. Our internet reception, despite being broadband, is not over quick. As such, we would find it difficult some of the time to watch TV this way, much preferring to either watch live, or record as it is being transmitted. Also, the quality is far better. Even HD on the iPlayer is not as good as HD on the TV.
When you divide the fee by 365 days, it works out at just under 40p per day. I have no idea how much it will rise after 2016 but at the moment, other than reading a library book which is free, I can't think of many forms of entertainment that works out at less than 40p per day.
I guess you pays your money and takes your chance as they say!
