BBC website users outside the UK will see adverts on the site when it becomes the BBC Worldwide-operated bbc.com over the next couple of months.

BBC Worldwide has established a joint venture with BBC Global News to develop the News, sport and weather parts of the new site. A guaranteed revenue system will feed some of the proceeds back directly into the licence-fee funded part of BBC News, where editorial control will remain.

In a statement, BBC Worldwide explained: "BBC Worldwide will pay the BBC for the rights and services it uses and, given that the majority of the international traffic to the website is to the News pages, BBC News will be the principal benefactor of these payments."

Funding for the international-facing part of the BBC website was previously provided by Grant in Aid by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

I think this is an excellent decision, hopefully it will help reduce costs on the international website and they will be able to put more of that money back into UK projects.

Actually, you will find that most countries in the world have a form of television license. In some countries, its very stealthy because its hidden within utility bills and the like, in other countries its quite a bit lower then the UK, but then so are the wages and quality of programming they enjoy.

I bet you're just talking about Australia, where the license fee was abolished lol grin ... but the ABC iirc is actually funded by the Australian government to the tune of nearly 1billion per year, which surprisingly gets its funds via taxes, so you're still technically paying for it anyway.

Also ITV, Channel 4 and five are terrible with adverts, at least with the BBC you dont have 10 minutes of adverts for every 20 mins of programming, ads do my head in!!

Haha they been after me for... 2 years at the end of January.

Its not that I refuse to pay it, I just like playing their game - they send out a letter every couple of months saying the same old shit, they will be starting an investigation in the coming weeks... but then nothing comes of it, and the same letter is sent a couple of months later haha.

If they actually do anything, I will gladly get a TV license lol, but until such a time I find it rather amusing how they havent got onto it yet... I have Sky ffs surely they could just check with the Sky database lmao!

having sky and paying their subscription fee doesnt exempt you from paying for a normal TV license tho! So why would they need to check the Sky database, only to further prove that you do indeed have a television and therefore should be paying for a license.

How do you run a business from that address Matty? surely it must be black listed if your not paying for a TV license.

Lol, I wouldnt know as my flat isnt my business address.

wink

I know having Sky doesnt exempt me, what I mean is if they used their nod and checked the sky database, they would see I am obviously paying for services to recieve television channels, which means I am instantly liable to pay the license fee.

I wasnt saying that you thought you were exempt just hat it could have been read that way and I just wanted to clear it up.

tbh I didnt think that you would have your flat as your business address. amateurs mistake is that one.
