Default BBC is constipated

No but one might consider that if they offer streaming then they might
attempt to get the rights, or at the very least mention in the promo that it
will not be available on the on line version of bbc1. Probably going to
need to watch for this a lot as things get more complicated.

as they say, they don't have the rights to stream it. what would you have
them do? - break the law just for you?
