English term or phrase: on the license it scooped up
The BBC, whose job is to be the guardian of quality in British television, is in triumphant form these days. This week, it secured for the first time a £350m ($550m) borrowing limit from the Treasury specially to develop its commercial arm. This autumn, it will expand its digital empire with the launch of “Freeview”, a free multi-channel terrestrial service on the license it scooped up after the collapse of ITV Digital. Odd then that the British TV industry is suffering unprecedented angst about the quality of the stuff it makes.
"на основе лицензии, которая она с лихвой присвоила"? Я не знаю, как эту часть с "on the license" по красивее передать. Эта станция работает с разрешения властей или корпорация раздобыла для лицензию?

Explanation:
ITV Digital was the UK carrier of Digital Terrestrial Television. In 2002 the company collapsed, and lost its digital TV broadcasting license. The BBC and Sky have joined forces, obtained that licensse and formed a new Digital TV company, called Freeview. Так что BBC лицензию не присвоило, а лихо перехватило, или подхватило.
