Revoke the TV licence at the end of 2027

We wish the TV licence to be revoked when the BBC's current Royal Charter expires at the end of 2027. From that point the BBC should be funded in a different way, which does not require people to pay for a licence to view live broadcasts.

Removing the licence fee would mean people did not face the threat of prosecution for non-payment of the TV licence.

We believe moving to a different funding model could bring better content and the BBC could thrive under a different model, if they would have to compete for viewers. A change to the funding model would also give consumers a better choice as many other providers already do.
