"The new licence fee amount equates to just £2.89 a week or £12.54 a month. For that, the BBC provides 9 national TV channels plus regional programming, 10 national radio stations, 40 local radio stations and one of the UK's most popular websites," the BBC said.

"Last year 95% of the BBC's controllable spend went on content for audiences and delivery, with just 5% spent on running the organisation.
