Do you know I've not missed this channel since it went online, but now I
notice that the on air channels are plugging programmes on that channel and
more than that making said program a kind of link to one you just watched.
if i were a cynic I'd suggest nobody can be arrsed to watch it so they are
trying the old trick they use to get you ontheir web site of, if you have
been affected by any of these issues go to....
Yawn.

No, because BBC3 content is not "television programmes"

It's BBC Programmes available via iPlayer


I disagree - because that would require a licence for iPlayer Radio as
well.

It is not possible to form a description that includes BBC3 online
services without also capturing BBC radio online with the same definition.


How about:-
Quote from link provided up thread

"You need to be covered by a licence to watch or download almost
all BBC programmes on iPlayer. At the moment, there are just a few
exceptions – watching S4C TV on demand, listening to radio, and watching
films or TV shows you’ve bought on the BBC Store. There may be other
exceptions in the future.

Remember, you still need a TV Licence to watch or record any live
TV programmes on any channel, no matter what device you use." End Quote

Or at least it is not possible to read the legislation in such a way that
gives effect to that distinction.


If you say so

If BBC3 is "BBC Programmes online", then so is BBC Radio podcasts etc. If
they are not captured by the legislation (because they are not Television
Broadcsts, despite being BBC Programmes available via iPlayer) then BBC3
is likewise not covered.


If you say so

So when are you going to be involved in the test case then?
