BBC options for over 75s TV licences

A BBC-commissioned report looking at free TV licences for the over-75s has laid out four options for the future.

In 2020, the BBC takes over funding of the licence fees from the government, at an estimated cost of £745m a year.

The Frontier Economics report has looked at the costs and viability of scrapping the free fees or giving a 50% concession to over 75s.

They also looked at increasing the age threshold for eligibility and means-testing.
