Requires quality content. BBC reinvent yourself for 2000 first sort out the crap content and then aim at Netflix.
The Xmas day stats are telling, not one show I would have watched even time shifted. Xmas bake up, Christmas come laugh and vote. The midwife...typical period drama the BBC tries to claim is unique but not really for maybe 10years already.
The BBC is rubbish and the sooner it either cuts down its faux liberal remit and gets core tax funding or just ceases altogether won't be soon enough. The quality is not much higher than tmz these days.
People who are pro BBC are usually basing it on their rose tinted childhood.
