BBC One already uses its own, bespoke font. The argument for Reith is long-term it will save the BBC money by not having to pay for commercial font licences. So, I’m not sure it’ll use Reith at all, unless it’s been stated they will elsewhere?
Do we know if the BBC actually owns the BBC One font in the same way as it does Reith, or is it just licensed (exclusively) from Fontsmith, with ongoing relicensing fees? If that’s the case there would still be a financial case for switching BBC One’s font to Reith.
