“The BBC makes the best radio in the world,” says Director-General Tony Hall.
British public broadcaster BBC plans to launch a “Netflix of the spoken word” to take its radio content beyond the U.K.
Director-General Tony Hall in a London speech Wednesday said that the BBC plans to offer all of its audio content, in addition to its BBC World Service programming, to people in foreign markets. He didn’t immediately provide further details, including whether the BBC would charge international users.
The BBC is funded via a license fee covered by British taxpayers.
