June 2020 after reading the small print :think:

Quote:
The consultation will run for 12 weeks from 20 November date to 12 February date. The public can read and respond to the consultation here.
Alongside this consultation document, we are also publishing an Equality Impact Assessment to help ensure that we understand the potential equality impacts of different options.
The BBC has commissioned two reports by Frontier Economics which have been published.
The BBC will inform the public about the consultation on our website and through our broadcast outlets.
This scheme offering free TV licences to the over 75s has been funded by the Government since it was introduced in 2000. Government funding ends in 2020.
Parliament passed the Digital Economy Act 2017 transferring responsibility to the BBC itself to decide what, if any, age-related concession should be in place for those aged 65 and older beyond June 2020.
If the BBC copied the existing scheme and replaced the Government’s funding for free TV licences for all those aged over 75, the cost would be £745 million a year by 2021/2022. By the end of the next decade the annual cost of the concession will have risen to over £1 billion, reflecting the fact that the UK population is ageing and the impact of inflation. The BBC does not have the power to raise the licence fee to cover those costs.

Long before reaching any small print its clear this document is discussing free TV licences for the over 75's. Nothing whatsoever to do with what I asked.

What I require is information on the BBCs plan to start charging overseas listeners for its currently free Radio services. Are you struggling to find it?

I'm sure it's buried somewhere, but I can't be arsed to read the 2,000 page consultation document. [adrian.gif]

The 376 million people using the BBC for free outside the UK are seen by the BBC as a cash cow. :whee:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/lates ... l-audience

The "consultation" only applies to the UK and the focus is only on those getting free tv licences due to 1/2 the UK reaching this age in the next few years.

Well, I hate to say this.......but no one is interested in the rights of people outside the UK watching BBC tv :crying:

So those nasty people at the BBC can start charging you from 2020. They don't need a "consultation" they will just tap it onto the new rules.

and European partners to develop UK and European regional

I need to re write that for dummies. [spank.gif]

" Working closely with Government, Ofcom will engage with UK stakeholders
and European partners to develop UK and European regional positions
"

They got together with others and limited the range of radio broadcasts to within 12 miles of their borders for FM/MW/DAB.

"European partners to develop UK and European regional positions to take into the World Radio Council -19 with the aim of achieving outcomes which are best aligned with UK interests."

Radio programs aren't free to make :blink:
Those tacky add's you hear on them pay it for it. :whistle:
Radio companies want the same "ip filtering system" for streaming radio.... tv broadcasters have. Then they can sell tacky add's targeted at those living outside the UK. :winedrinker:

The BBC don't have tacky add's and they're asking for a payment service :shock:

So you keep saying, but to date you havent managed to come up with one bit of documentation confirming this. Not even a link or newspaper report. Zilch. Nothing. You need to do better than this if you want to convince me.

Well its all a bit up in the air right now due to Brexit [9n5.gif]
The EU laws on streaming services and copyright apply right now......the UK is trying to leave.

If the BBC start a subscription service under EU law: the contract is invalid once the UK leaves.

And since the UK cant make new laws until they leave the EU: the BBC can't offer an subscription service.

So once all this gets sorted out.......... :peekaboo:

You can sign up for a BBC global media account and use all there services if you have internet access. :whee:
