The Portuguese version of an audio visual tax is better, whereby a contribution is made via the electricity bill when consumption of electricity in a household rises above approximately 400Kwh per annum. (Low consumers of energy are exempt (empty property).
The broadcaster in receipt of the money however has to raise the difference in advertising and sales.
In Portugal the "fee" is less than three euros per month!
I would suggest in the UK its fixed at £60 per annum reducing year on year for 10 years until the BBC is self sufficient and no longer requires a "fee" to exist.
