As part of its budget cuts, the BBC is axing 2000 jobs. Also, "The changes will see more repeats on BBC2, fewer entertainment shows, less money spent on sports rights and a shrunken BBC3 and BBC4."

Analysts says the BBC is still too big, the cuts should have been bolder to reshape the BBC, the cuts won't heavily impact viewers yet, and news will take a hit.
