In the UK Television has become popular, There are popular channels that over power more, The BBC run mainly from TV licensing, Income from the licence is primarily used to fund the television, radio and online services of the bbc.
The difference between channels such as BBC and ITV is that ITV run from advertising, ITV being the most popular running from advertising but many other channels excel from this way, such as channel 4 and 5.

BBC running from TV license means they can own smaller companies to ear more money. When you see one channel advertising another the main company to receive the money would be the one the channel is owned by, This is a popular way of keeping small channels on the line.

Since BBC have started advertising there has been a huge debate on if tv licensing is actually fair in the UK:

Netflix is famous for having its own stream of shows, such as MARVELS Daredevil and the popular Orange is the New Black.
Netflix is as cheap as 5.99 a month and works out cheaper than having a TV license. This therefore makes you wonder what you’re getting from the BBC, there are times when the BBC are down and this could cause trouble.

As the TV company must have an owner, this points to Mr. Rupert Murdoch, He is the owner of multiple media outlets, this causes trouble in signs of being biased.
He is a powerful man in the USA for being the owner of multiple media outlets; His team acquired Twentieth Century Fox,  HarperCollins  and The Wall Street Journal . He formed the British broadcaster BSkyB in 1990, and during the 1990s expanded into Asian networks and South American television. By 2000, Murdoch’s News Corporation owned over 800 companies in more than 50 countries with a net worth of over $5 billion.
In the UK Murdoch own(ed) the News Of The World and was responsible for the fall, They were accused of hacking celebrities phones, The issue here is where they would publish the news is also Owned by Murdoch.
There is never a fair review published if the same man owns multiple media outlets.
