The BBC licence fee: value for money

Following on from my bemused post about BBC Dimensions, here are some nice breakdowns of what you get per month for the licence fee (2009/10 figures):

  • TV: £7.85 per month per household (pmph) / 66% of monthly fee
  • Radio: £2.81 pmph / 17%
  • Online (including iPlayer): £0.67 pmph / 6%
  • Other: £1.35 / 11%

I don’t really watch much television. But £3.50 a month for all of the BBC Radio and online? Bargain.

  1. Its a great bargain if you do watch it because you basically have a whole country forced to subsidise it for you
