Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As an American, I would gladly pay a BBC license fee if I could have access to the complete range of BBC's programming over the Internet. (I would not pay a fee to get BBC programming via satellite or cable TV.) Because even despite the BBC News' many flaws and shortcomings, BBC News is often the only western press coverage in many places and, I think, their international reporting and interviews, for the most part, have integrity. I also like some of the BBC's domestic programming as well. My understanding is the BBC has never seriously considered expanding the license fee to make it a subscription for those outside of Britain.
