Report Summary:

The BBC has strong overall importance and satisfaction ratings but is struggling to reach younger and lower income groups. Less than a third of people believe the TV Licence Fee should be scrapped, but the current cost is considered to be too high. This ConsumerMetrix Bulletin presents the results of a survey of 1023 UK respondents on the importance of the BBC, satisfaction with its services, payment of the Licence Fee, and attitudes towards alternative methods of funding the BBC.
