    • BBC World Service The BBC World Service is the world's largest international broadcaster, broadcasting news, speech and discussions in 28 languages to many parts of the world on analogue and digital shortwave platforms, internet streaming, podcasting, satellite, FM and MW relays. The World Service was reported to have reached 188 million people a week on average in June 2009. It does not carry advertising, and the English language service broadcasts 24 hours a day. The World Service is currently funded by grant-in-aid through the Foreign and Commonwealth Office of the British Government, however from 2014, it will be funded by the compulsory television license fee levied on every household in the United Kingdom using a television to watch broadcast programmes. The License Fee The licence fee is used almost entirely to fund the BBC's domestic radio, television and internet services. The money received from the fees represents around 75% of the cost of these services with most of the remainder coming from the profits of BBC Worldwide. Advantages of License Fee As the BBC does not have to rely on advertisers to fund it, it can produce more speciality and minority programming. On commercial stations these sorts of programmes might not get enough listeners so advertisers would not want to give the station money.
    • What else does the BBC own In addition to broadcasting output on television and radio, some programmes are also displayed on the BBC Big Screens located in several central city locations. The BBC and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office also jointly run BBC Monitoring, which monitors radio, television, the press and the internet worldwide.
    • What is commercial radio? Commercial broadcasting is the broadcasting of television and radio programmes by privately-owned corporate media, as opposed to state ownership. Commercial broadcasting is primarily based on the practice of airing radio advertisements and television advertisements for profit. This is in contrast to public broadcasting, which receives government subsidies and avoid most paid advertising.
    • National commercial radio stations Most commercial stations serve a local or regional area and are owned by one of three big groups which dominate the sector. There are over 300 in the UK, mostly using FM frequencies and DAB. There are three national commercial stations broadcasting on FM or AM throughout the UK as well as via DAB, DTV and online. Classic FM (100-103 FM) - classical music Absolute Radio (AM mostly 1215 medium wave) - rock and pop music talkSPORT(AM mostly 1089/1053 medium wave) - live sport and debate Local commercial radio stations The most popular local commercial stations in London are: Advertising on commercial radio Heart 106.2 Capital 95.8 LBC 97.3 Magic 105.4 Commercial radio stations make most of their revenue selling "airtime" to advertisers. Radio accounts for 6.9%. Radio advertisements or "spots" are available when a business or service provides valuable consideration, usually cash, in exchange for the station airing their spot or mentioning them on air.
