I'd rather the BBC weren't spending £100,000 an episode of our licence fees on a tired old soap though!

Just IMHO of course, I know Neighbours is still popular - but £100k? That's a ridiculous price increase from the £25,000 the current contract is for.

ITV are taking it over apparently. Bagpuss07 you will still get your daily fix.

Rich I agree with you, Im sure they could be spending my fee money on something else.

DOWN WITH NEIGHBOURS!!! Razz

I'm with Rob, £100K per episode is absurd! Let ITV have it then they can pay for it and not me!

I thought channel five already had Home and Away??? Anyway, good for BBC for telling them to 'shove it', neighbours is ok but it's not worth £100K an episode!!

Sounds a bit like the Virgin/Sky battle!!! Crazy

On this subject...

Who else thinks that the fees for blimmin BBC are outdated and outrageous??? Every other channel has to find their own funds. I hardly ever watch piggin BBC, and pay a pretty price for a good Sky package... Now why the hell should I have to pay for one lousy network - with NO CHOICE in the matter??? Ridiculous. They have the cheek to call it a 'licence'. It's daylight effing robbery - just think how much they are raking in - everyone in the UK with a TV has to subsidise them - grrrrr Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad

The BBC have pulled out of the negotiations now, and Neighbours will dissapear off BBC 1 next year. The current battle is now between ITV and Channel 5 who want to do an Aussie hour running Neighbours and Home and Away back to back...all very well, but £100,000 per episode???? disgrace!!!

£100,000 per episode is digusting and the aussies are pretty greedy asking form that sum of money. I resent paying the tv licence as it is I only ever watch a handful of programmes on the BBC and prefer the Freeview channels we have or ITV1 and Channel 4.

I honestly don't mind paying the license fee, we get a quite a few channels on the BBC now and tbh I think it has better programs than some I pay for on my cable. on the other hand suppose I opt to pay for cable but there is not much choice in paying your license fee, if you don't watch BBC it is a waste of money in that sense.
