Do you have a link? I thought not!


And if it is correct then good - pay for what you watch!

It was rumoured (leaked?) some time ago that this was likely to happen. I think it will be for all catchups, not just iPlayer.

I expect it will be in the coming budget.

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.

I find it hard to believe that only iPlayer will be affected. If it is, then they lose the justification for saying watching anything except BBC stuff still requires a licence.

Perhaps he doesn't realise that although the licence fee funds the Beeb it isn't simply a licence to watch BBC.

TV Licence required to watch Netflix then? Ouch.
