TV license to be extended
« on: March 02, 2016, 14:28:50 PM »
UK TV license to also apply to those who use iPlayer to watch programmes later.

Plus those who record with a PVR to watch programmes later are to be obliged to have a license.

Measures to also go ahead to stop people using AdBlockers when visiting sites as it "denies them revenue".

Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

   It was only a matter of time.  It's time the Beeb competed in the private sector.
