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