    What could the BBC do to cut costs or bring in more money

    Without affecting the viewing pleasure.
    What would you like to see go.
    Should they advertise or go for product placement.
    I also think that for the 80k plus earners with multiple very expensive TV's should pay double the fee.
    What do you think?

      The bbc shouldn't really do anything. This is shifting the blame for what is essentially a tax tory increase. Here's what should happen,Tory leadership candidates instead of promising massive tax cuts for the wealthy should promise to pay for the free license fees for the over 75's. The whole things stinks as a tory scheme to undermine support for the bbc.

      As an ex- pat I would happily pay a Netflix sized monthly subscription to access the BBCs rich content but there is no option. A missed opportunity in my opinion.

      They need to build their relationship with the big players such as Amazon Prime, Netflix and Disney and Apple when they enter the market.

      subscription overseas is the obvious answer, but the Beeb seem reluctant even obstructive to this, presumably fearing they become seen as a commercial operation. i read a industry analyst view they could make more than the entire TV licensing revenue this way, so could abolish it altogether.

      Why?

      What about people who earn less than £30K and have multiple very expensive TVs? Should they pay more?
