The BBC are NOT buying any local TV content. The BBC are providing start up costs from the Licence fee, by Government decision, ONLY towards the MUX operators start-up engineering costs. It's a ONE WAY transaction. COMUX can with the BBC's approval provide some upfront funding, as a loan, to the channels from this money. The BBC are acting as auditors for these transactions as stewards of the Licence fee.
