I always thought that there was more to the phone hacking than dialing into someones mobile and using the generic pin number for messages, People like the Prime minister and royal family would have  had their phones set up by a professional the pass word would have been set correctly. Murdoch bought into NDS with a view to using their expertise to further his own ends in any field he could. I am sure the NDS affair does not stop at hacking the smart cards of rival TV stations. An Israeli electronic security company is bound to have close links to Mossad    and other state security organisations and Murdoch will have milked this for every cent.

Who would have thought it, Murdock a lying cheating scumbag? You don't get rich and powerful by playing nice. Seem to remember a certain Mr Jobs stealing an Os from Xerox and then accusing a certain Mr Gates of stealing it from him. What some people will do for money eh! Bastards.

It is a BBC program. You are supposed to pay a licence fee to view. Thanks to those 'pirates' you will likely be able to download it from the shadier parts of the internet.

Isn't BBC a state-funded organization?

Torrent FTW.

The state forces every household with a TV to buy a licence which mostly funds the BBC.

I'm a sky subscriber and get BBC as part of that but I still don't get access to iplayer

Changing your dns to those from unblock-us.com will let you watch it

Even if you do not want to watch the BBC or any Broadcasts just having a "Receiver for TV" is a cost"

It pays massive wages to the old boy network in the BBC.

Yes extortion by the state is legal so not extortion i suppose.

Your licence fee does NOT allow you to watch TV.It licences you to receive  broadcasts at a specific range of frequencies or rather to use equipment equipped to do so. Or rather it was. Now with the digital age the waters are much murkier and the BBC insist that you have a licence no matter how you receive their content.So the term 'Licence' is redundant in it's original form.

If you don't watch TV you don't have to pay the license.

I just checked and it now seems you are in need of a license if you watch Live TV or record it live. This includes  include programmes on the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5, cable and satellite television.

Its a new act of parliament in 2003 I stand corrected.

I'm sure it was a License for a receiver before.

Its still a tax on television and should be scrapped along with the old crony network it supports.

I pay my cable company already for my TV programs.

The Licence goes back to the days of Marconi, He conned the government of the time into allowing him to have  royalties not only on all radio transmissions but also on all receivers manufactured or sold in the UK, it was not until the late 1960's that all receiver sets had to have a small plastic label with the Marconi licence number inside them. There was a court case recently where it was decided that if you watched tv programs on the internet and did not have a TV receiver you did not require a TV licence so I guess the writing is on the wall for the present system.

I heard on the radio yesterday that Murdoch had been up to dirty tricks in Australia with pirated smart cards, If he has done the same in US he wont get out of jail till the 22nd century.
