The BBC's decision to change its licensing policy regarding the iPlayer got me thinking about my own consumption of live television. I now almost exclusively watch streaming services like Amazon Prime and Netflix, so should I even be paying for a licence?
With the Olympics on at the moment, I have been watching some of the coverage, but I could easily go without it or simply watch it at a friend's house.
However, in spite of this, I'm happy to continue paying my licence fee for a number of reasons. For a start, I use the BBC News and BBC Sport websites every day, and I listen to BBC Radio 4 on a regular basis. I don't actually need a licence for any of this, but I'm happy to contribute to make sure they continue to exist.
I also believe that having a high-quality, noncommercial national broadcasting corporation is a hugely important part of British culture. In many ways, standards have dropped at the BBC in recent years, but for me, it's still head and shoulders above the competition.
