BBC America is an American pay television network that is jointly owned by BBC Studios and AMC Networks. Unlike the BBC’s domestic channels in the United Kingdom, BBC America does not receive funding from the British licence fee (which is the principal funding for the BBC’s channels within the United Kingdom), as the BBC cannot fund any of its channels that are available outside the United Kingdom. Consequently, BBC America operates as a commercial-supported channel and accepts traditional advertising. It is also funded by television subscription fees.
