Alternatives to BBC licence fee model 'don't stack up'

Press Association

A Devon Tory MP has reeled off a list of things "Netflix doesn't give you" as he defended the BBC from comparisons with the internet television giant.

Peter Heaton-Jones, a former BBC journalist and presenter, made the comments as he recalled a conversation with a constituent over the two services.

"He said 'Netflix costs me half as much as the BBC, and has five times the content'," said North Devon MP Mr Heaton-Jones.

"Here's what Netflix doesn't have: It doesn't have radio, doesn't have regional broadcasting, doesn't have news and current affairs, it doesn't have the huge educational programmes, it doesn't put computers into schools, it doesn't cover live sport, it doesn't have the huge community events that bring the country together like Children in Need raising £50m last Friday. That's what Netflix doesn't give you."

Mr Heaton-Jones said alternatives to the current licence fee funding model for the BBC "don't stack up", adding: "When it comes to subscription or advertising, they would be extraordinarily retrograde steps.

"If you allow the BBC to take advertising, not only do you immediately raise questions about impartiality and neutrality, but frankly also come midnight most nights you would have a live roulette wheel, which is exactly what you have on ITV most nights."

Man dies after car collides with school bus
