Since when did paying a license fee provide you ownership of content?

Omg movies from 1981. Terrible deal. Voted hot. I love old movies. More natural and more realistic. 🖒
Thx, purchased.
What’s the guide price
It's not hd
Good deal . I got it when it was reduced on Google Play (it was £2.99 at the end of last month) and enjoyed (It does come with a lot of extras as well).

Its also £3.99 at Amazon at the present

Of course not, neither is the Blu-ray.


Try reading the description online. It’s in full hd and 5.1
I'll be swimming with the fish...

The source material (mostly) isn’t HD and they’ve bodged the conversion too.

As mentioned the source material isn’t HD, pretty sure I’ve read elsewhere that the source material was filmed on the equivalent of a VHS tape in the first place.
Granted the Blu-ray will be slightly better quality than on digital but for £3.99 it’s still very much watchable.

Essential purchase. One of your 5 a day.

If you fund the creation of anything else in this life one would expect use of that thing until you expire. Especially if it’s against the law to not fund the creation of said thing
mostly harmless- hot!

If you pay a Netflix or Amazon sub which funds the creation of many of their own shows do expect access to those until you expire also.
Zaphodbeeblebrox will not be impressed.!!

Is a sub to either of those required by law even if you don’t watch them? No.

So no.

TV License is only required by law if you watch or record Live TV and use BBC iPlayer.
If you do no watch or record live or use BBCiPlayer then you don’t need a license.

The point being it is still required even if you don’t watch any BBC content.

It’s like having to pay Amazon because you only watch Netflix.

If you don’t watch BBC content then just watch everything else via catchup.
The vast majority of stuff I watch is recorded which if I’m honest I could probably just watch via catchup myself.
If it wasn’t for the missus having to watch a few BBC shows I’d get rid of the sky box and just use my Apple TV and say bye bye to the license fee.

But regardless of all that £3.99 for this show is a pretty good deal all the same.

Worried about poor quality images? Try the radio version, the pictures are much better!
