The BBC director-general has said that a commercial model for the licence fee would be a mistake that could leave the UK's media market "looking exactly like America". Speaking to The UK Tonight with Sarah-Jane Mee, Tim Davie said: "In my view, it would be actually the wrong choice for society, for who we are. There are bigger things at play here if you just have a commercial market. "I don't want to see our media market look exactly like America. This is a choice for all of us. It's not imposed by the BBC. It's a choice for what kind of media market we have."
