Ultimately getting rid of the BBC license fee...

why do we pay money for a broadcast media (inc bbc license fee) in this day and age which could surely harness the power of new non-linear technology...

surely internet connected set-top boxes where we could watch the whole bbc (and other tv stations) archive will be technically possible soon...

the online retailer amazon, apple itunes and the hmv chain could run radio stations instead of the old bbc...

with streamed adverts like you already got on youtube and by offering the archive of bbc material to foreign viewers with ads, maybe we could very soon be in a position where we no longer have to pay out for a license fee..
