"I don't know how this works in all different countries but the Army and the NHS are payed through taxation so why not the BBC too..."

The Beeb gets £3.7Bn from the License fee. At present only those who have TV broadcast receiving equipment pay it. If you pay for it out of General Taxation, then every Tax Payer will be contributing, regardless of whether they watch TV or not. I thought this was what people were complaining about.
