The money received from the fee represents approximately 75% of the cost of these services with most of the remainder coming from the profits of BBC Worldwide — a commercial wing of the corporation which sells programmes and runs stations overseas (such as BBC World News), as well as other business allied to broadcasting such as publishing. A television licence is required for each household where television programmes are watched as they are broadcast.

Disadvantage- • should not be charged for a service that you do not use. • forced to pay whether or not you use the BBC . • Its expensive.
