So, out of curiosity, how does BBC's user base split out between:
- traditional over-the-air reception,
- cable,
- satellite (is their a UK equivalent of DishTV),
- Internet?

I'm pretty sure that in most US major markets broadcasters primarily 
reach their subscribers over cable these days - with those cable 
providers also providing subscribers' Internet access.
