BBC iplayer now requres a username+ password

Hi,

so now you need to register and have both a username and password to use it. They say they will check the usernames and addresses to see if you are a tv licence payer.

Will you continue to use it ?

Have fun
Martin

Yep.






I had a quick look - and it wanted my age, gender, post code and an email address. Didn't ask me if I had a TV licence (I do) and seemed to indicate it was a market research thing.

No requirement of a licence, nor a UK address though.
Works fine for us in Switzerland.
All UK tax is by self declaration & you have to declare that you do have a TV license to access BBC iplayer. Some people are dishonest & get away with it.
