IPL on Youtube

Found 14th Mar 2010
Just came to know that IPL is being shown on Youtube with 5 to 10 minutes delay. Not sure if it can be pointed as a deal here.

As per Tvlicensing.co.uk, you should buy a TV license if you are watching something thats shown as broadcasted. But since there's a 5 to10 minutes delay (as ITV got broadcasting rights in UK, youtube showing it with this delay), i am not sure if we need to buy TV licensing to watch it. comments welcome.

This will fall under Catch up TV. So yes you need TV lic

Not if it isn't live or as it's been broadcast you don't.


I think you might be right.

Thanks for the heads up OP didn't have a clue what IPL was....but looked it up. My dad will be thrilled :thumbsup:
From the useful link provided by bellabonkers, here is what they say about circumstances like this.

Watching TV on the internet
You need to be covered by a licence if you watch TV online at the same time as it's being broadcast on conventional TV in the UK or the Channel Islands.

The question is, how much of a delay do they require before a broadcast is no longer "simultaneous" with the online copy.

If the online copy is a playback from a recording of the live broadcast, then even 5 minutes might be OK.
