"If the BBC is so popular, why is it not funded through subscribing, just like Sky."

EXACTLY.

Let the BBC become a subscription service, added to your Sky/Virgin "bundle" and ensure BBC subscriber cards are available for people watching on Freeview/Freesat.

If the other channels want to go to a subscription model, then let them. Then we all have free choice as to what we want to watch.

Personally, I don't want to subsidise Strictly Apprentice Chris Evans Bake Off Roadshow as a result of maybe wanting to see something on Sky or Netflix.

I have a TV and an aerial point in the house - so what's the betting even if I declared that I don't watch "TV", someone from Crapita will decree that I *could* watch TV via an aerial cable, if that was bought for 69p from Wilko's...spare me the hassle, P-Leese....
