iPlayer is Public - leave it alone

September 23rd, 2009

Will someone tell the former BBC One controller to go away (being polite). Apparently he says BBC's iPlayer users should be charged to use the service. Oh no, you don't get paid for doing this twice. We pay a licence fee (a disguised tax) for BBC services and iPlayer was devloped with that money. Sorry mate unless you want to hand back the devlopment costs to us in a reduction in licence fee, you can go fly a kite.

It is amazing how the BBC tries it on in so many disguises.
