It appears you'll need an account to use iPlayer from some time next year!

Lol.

And? you make it sound like they will link accounts to your TV licence. You only need an account, that's all. Just like you do for the ITV player.

Nothing to see here.

I think they want you to think that. But lets face it, scare tactic's are all the BBC have left. . .

It will eventually be linked to the licence I suspect.
It's easy to set up a disposable email and use a postcode from just about anywhere in the UK to create an account.

Or you all could just buy a TV licence....

Or not watch it. I haven't watched broadcast TV since 2006 and stopped using iPlayer the day it required a TV license to watch it. Nothing worth watching on it anyway.

All these accounts, crazy, may need account to walk in the street, smoke, drink alcohol, breath oxygen under Kyoto agreement, use public toilet and play in the park. This is government in disguise, how many of these people are employed in managing the billions of accounts in this country, lol, plus outsourced and then create jobs in Mumbai.

some people just like to steal stuff.

I wish they would link it to the licence and then provide a full service with archived shows.

Haven't used iPlayer since 2009 and that was to watch George Romero's Night of the Living Dead (or Dawn of the Dead.. I can't remember precisely).

Have to say very rarely use iPlayer *shockhorror* still watch live TV
but when I do it works(unlike when it started) on the other hand a lot of the functions on something like nowtv are rubbish or non existent

Even channel 4 requires it, it'll be either used to send you spam / emails or collection list for tvlicensing

More so you should be using different password for each site too...I guess you can get away with a silly password for sites like iPlayer where it doesn't matter too much.

But I'm sure they will be logging IPs even though they say they don't. Then easy to prove email address was used to access the service from a particular IP and ta da

Everyone has to pay a TV licence because there is no way the BBC could survive else.
