Found 22nd May 2016
Just had an email saying that you can get 75% off at BBC Store today (Sunday 22nd May).

Enter the promo code LASTCHANCE75

Only available on one item (but the item could include boxsets!), rather than a basket of items.

From the email -

"Terms & Conditions: To redeem the discount, use promotional code LASTCHANCE75 to get 75% off a purchase on BBC Store. This offer ends 23.59 on 22.05.16. This offer is not valid with any other promotional discount or offer and subject to availability. Only one promotional code can be used per transaction and one use per person."

Other promo codes are also available, info via Hall (in post #30) Thanks Hal -

"TUBE50 works for 50% off as well; as does NOWDIGITAL. So I was able to get 75% off one thing, and 50% off 3 others using LASTCHANCE75 plus TUBE50, RAIL50 and NOWDIGITAL."

You can stream them via iPlayer or download them to a device using the BBC Store app -

How are they charging £2 odd to download 20 year old episodes of Eastenders. These have already been paid for by the licence payer. BBC crooks.
are these physical copies or are they all downloads ? How do you know which you are buying
all downloads !
voted cold - these should be free, we have already paid for them

The royal charter and license, constitute the BBC as a public corporation with a mandate to provide broadcasting as a public service. BBC is funded by an annual license fee levied on the majority of UK residents owning a television set regardless of income

This is very different to a company such as Netflix or Sky where you may choos if you wish to subscribe to their service

Who mentioned Netflix or Sky? Your suggestion is that media should only be paid for once - if you watch a film at the cinema would you expect to then be able to get a free copy either physical or stream to watch at home?

qwerta369 hasn't.
The BBC have been selling Videos/DVD's of their own TV programmes for years, no change here that they are offering in a digital format too.
They'll argue, no doubt, that their revenue includes the reselling of content, if they didn't, the licence fee would be more

Anyway, I'm happy to pay £2.49 for a box set that I will always have, never lose or take up physical space, compared to buying the equivalent for £10-20 on DVD (which I was looking at doing)
£3.24 for season 2 of The Hollow Crown (including last week's rollercoaster and last night's tour de force)?! Yes please! Thanks OP!

Edit: was so excited I forgot to go through Quidco! Oh well, still worth it!

I've tried to expire this offer but for some reason it's still active - not sure what I've done wrong but could an admin sort? Thanks

I don't want to kick up an argument, but I am interested in these discussions.

The way I see it, the business models are incompatible, but similar...

TV Licence is an on-going subscription service and the Cinema is a single use rental. With the TV Licence, you are paying for live broadcasts. With Cinema, you are paying to have a seat in a room for the duration of a movie. The only thing they have in common is that they are licences to view, not to own.

So to answer your question, no. There is no reason watching something on terrestrial TV or at a cinema should result in you owning a local copy of the content. Whether this is right or not is a different (and very valid) argument
