Then you'd only get "safe" programming made, they wouldn't take risks on new talent or programmes that take a while to build an audience. You'd lose the bredth of programming. And trailers for other bbc programmes would become more intrusive.
There shouldn't even be a TV license, just have pay preview for everything and then everyone pays for what they watch, that way, if watching paint dry was popular then it would get the money.
Even Sky doesn't work that way you pay for a bundle of channels rather than on a show by show basis. Netflix and Lovefilm are beginning to make shows, but again this is to draw you into their subscription service.
The BBC might work if it bundled say the main 4 tv stations together, a national radio bundle, a kids bundle, a news bundle etc. Can't help thinking we'd end up paying more for less on that model.
I disagree, TV producers/makers would know target audiences and make programmes for them using formulae that work but can be tweeted continuously to effectively renew itself.
Just look at the internet, TV is changing, people choose what they want to watch, sure there will probably always will be bundles as such to tie people in but at least your not going to be paying for a massive amount of crap. With regard to advertising, just watch on demand and fast forward through them.
For a TV 'corporation' to be allowed to tax us is incredible, I say put adverts on BBC, I will just get up and make a brew, go to the toilet, fast forward through them, whatever.....do away with the tax then I won't have to pay for shite like soap operas, Striclty come dancing, snooker, golf, the news (and I use the term loosely), downton abbey etc., etc.
