BBC iPlayer App use brings changes soon

The way we watch video content or broadcast TV has changed dramatically over the last few years, and away from home cinema set ups and 4K TVs many now use mobile devices to get their daily fix of content. Soon though those that take advantage of the BBC iPlayer App will see some changes due to a closure of a loophole.

Currently those that watch content via the BBC iPlayer App on various devices can do so without having to pay out for a TV licence, but from the 1st of September the BBC is bringing some new rules that will mean those that use the application will now have to pay the £145.50 licence fee.

There are many that feel the TV licence should be scrapped as no matter what channels that are watched you still have to pay out for a licence with all the money going to the BBC.

These new rules affect whatever device users watch content on, but other on demand video streaming services such as All 4, My5, and ITV Player remain free to end users.

Do you think the BBC TV licence should be scrapped?
