The BBC Trust has ordered a review to see if the way the BBC distributes its content provides value for money.
The BBC’s governing body has commissioned specialist media consultancy Mediatique to access its distribution activities from traditional broadcast to online.
The review will consider whether the BBC is meeting its obligations for distribution, ensuring every household has convenient access to BBC services across the UK – free at the point of use – and whether it is doing this in a cost-effective way. It will also consider how well placed the BBC is to meet its future UK distribution challenges, given the ever-evolving ways in which people choose to access BBC services.
The BBC spends about £200 million (€232 million), or 6% of its budget, on distribution.
