edward williams started this petition to Minister for Digital Culture Media and Sport

Make those who wish to watch the BBC in its current format and content be the sole funders of it. Rather than wait another 6 years until 2027 when the current Royal Charter expires make the TV Licence a BBC only Licence now by changing the Communication Act 2003 now slightly which can be changed at any time. This change will enable people who do not wish to watch the BBC but do wish to watch other TV channels free to be able to watch those other TV channels without a legal obligation effectively pay the BBC in order to do so. This should be able to be achieved now because the definition of the TV Licence is not laid out within the Royal Charter but is instead captured by the Communication Act 2003.
