200,000 homes ditch their BBC TV licences in a year prompting funding crisis at the corporation as No10 says it wants Netflix-style subscription system

Around 200,000 fewer households currently have a TV licence compared to a year ago, despite a continuing rise in the UK's population.

This comes amid claims that Downing Street is planning to scrap the fee and turn the broadcaster into a Netflix-style subscription service.
