The Government Could Ask BBC IPlayer To Introduce A Paid Service | TV News



Every time I read the words Whittingdale and the BBC, I feel the death knell of our independent Television system get ever louder. The Government is suggesting that it could ask the BBC to trial a new paid-for system on the iPlayer as it cracks down on viewers using the site to watch shows without having a TV license.


John Whittingdale is to tell the BBC that it has to put passwords on the iPlayer, he will also ask it to investigate a new offering in which people would pay for shows outside its traditional catch up window. The moment that happens, I’m afraid that I will be boycotting such measures.
