« on: September 12, 2014, 08:16:42 PM »
UK citizens have to pay the BBC Licence fee every year or risk going to prison. BUT americans get all of the programmes we pay for, FOR FREE!
Please sign this BBC Trust petiton to make sure we only pay for UK TV programmes. At the moment we are paying for the BBC to show OUR programmes worldwide for free.
Please go to https://www.change.org/p/bbc-stop-using-uk-license-fee-payers-money-to-fund-free-american-channels and sign to make sure we only pay for OUR OWN programmes.
You can check http://bbcamerica.com they even get programmes that are not even showed in England and our BBC actors are there too!. More of our money spent on programmes we can't even watch!

Drew, there is no need to post this in every single board, it begins to resemble spam.  All posts but this one will be removed save for this one to remain for discussion.

Drew you may be interested to know that BBC America if funded through a little thing you may have heard of, called advertising.

The BBC is prohibited from using the licence fee to fund output which is not available to those in the UK.  Hope this helps.
