BBC may require licence for iPlayer

May 20, 2009

Suddenly the BBC has realised that by putting all of its content on the internet and making it available for all to see through the iPlayer, there could be viewers who do not have a TV licence watching BBC programmes.

The BBC is suggesting that it need to cover the cost of the freeloaders, and has put forward two ideas.

The first is that users of the iPlayer who do not have a current TV Licence should be required to pay for a special iPlayer licence in order to enjoy these services.

The second idea is a simple increase in the TV Licence fee, which is not going to go down well with the public who are already funding the iPlayer so that non TV Licence holder can view BBC shows.
