The BBC is the world’s leading public service broadcaster. Its aim is to be the most creative organisation in the world. Operating under a Royal Charter, the BBC’s UK public service broadcasting is funded by the licence fee, paid by UK households. Income is used to provide services including 10 national TV channels plus regional programming, national and local radio stations and an extensive online presence.
The BBC creates, commissions and broadcasts more hours of original television and radio programming than any other broadcasting organisation.
BBC iPlayer is the most popular on-demand TV platform in the UK with over 10 billion programme requests since it was launched.
Commercially, BBC Worldwide delivers and promotes BBC content and formats to international audiences, with over two-thirds of its revenue coming from outside of UK.
