  9. 9. Effects of relying on advertising revenue? • Commercial broadcasting is primarily based on the practice of hiring television advertisement for profit. This is in to public broadcasting which receives government subsides and eschews most paid advertisement. The negative of relying on adverts are that you always have to attract viewers because if your channel doesn’t have enough viewers the advertisement team wont give you there adverts which means your not making enough money to stay in the business and that means you close down you company because of relying on advertisement.

  14. 14. Advantages of being funded by the licence fee • We believe that licence fee funding will be a benefit to the World Service, the wider BBC, • and the British people. The BBC’s licence fee funding is based on multi-year settlements, • with the current funding arrangement lasting until 2017. Although the BBC’s income is • itself constrained over this period, this level of certainty in funding provides a relatively • stable environment in which to make decisions about existing and future services. A • combination of a secure funding source, and the clarity of purpose set out in the Operating Licence, will give the World Service a strong footing to plan its activities for the • coming years. • We believe that the rest of the BBC also benefits from funding the World Service through • the licence fee.
