Just days before a showdown meeting between the two broadcasting giants-BSkyB and BBC, it has emerged the corporation will have to pay considerably more to list its channels as a result of its decision to go it alone. While the BBC is hoping to save £17m a year in BSkyB fees, the satellite network is planning to hike up other charges to give it a place in the TV listings. The BBC will be told the charge to list each of its channels on Sky's electronic equivalent of the Radio Times will almost treble from £28,000 a year to £75,000. The corporation plans to include 31 channels on the guide, which means the charges amount to a massive £2.3m a year - a sum that would wipe out a proportion of the savings the BBC hoped to make by withdrawing the service in the first place. To rub salt into the wound, BSkyB will effectively discount the charges to any channels that remain and opt to take Sky's encryption and conditional access service. BSkyB amended the amount it charges broadcasters to be listed on the programme guide at the beginning of this year but the new tariff only takes effect when a new contract is negotiated. For the first time those channels that use Sky's encryption system, which the BBC is abandoning, will be asked to pay £35,000 while those that broadcast unencrypted will be asked to pay £75,000 a year.
