Sky News published this video item, entitled “BREAKING: BBC’s funding model to be reviewed as licence fee is frozen for two years” – below is their description.
The government will “undertake a review” of the BBC’s funding model and the licence fee will be frozen for the next two years, the Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries has said.
Ms Dorries told MPs it is “time to look further into the future” as we are now “living in a world of streaming giants”.
The Culture Secretary also confirmed the BBC licence fee will be frozen for the next two years and will rise in line with inflation for the four years after that.
It means the current £159 annual charge will remain in place until 2024 and equates to a severe real-terms cut in the corporation’s funding.Sky News YouTube Channel
