First of all, this will not affect the UK. They will move to the new media licencing system without too much fuss or fanfair after 2021/2022.

The Britbox package will have BBC radio and main stations like Capital added for overseas users. Just like sky do now. In the EU launch date depends on Brexit, in the USA this depends on the FCC.

For now enjoy the free service, it's not going to last much longer.

Britbox has no links whatsoever to Radio.

Keep digging....

Not yet...

Britbox is only available in the USA right now and the FFC is going to rule on allowing overseas radio media subscription streaming services soon. There no need to add radio to the UK package for obvious reasons launching later this year.

The EU market another story.

There are more people using the BBC's services outside the UK than paying for the current licence within the UK. Anyone in there right mind can see this will end :rolleyes:

And I guess you cant find any concrete evidence to back up your claims on this matter either?

In Brexit Britain, nothing "concrete" [9n5.gif]

What I will say is:

You can't use the BBC's media services without a licence in the UK.
You can't use Sky or Virgin media services with a subscription in the UK.

In the age of globalization, adopted or die

You still haven't come up with a scrap of evidence to back your claims.

I'd told you want there up to and where the BBC is going [adrian.gif]

Wait for the announcements early 2020/21. And I will be posting endlessly " I frking told you so [smiley-finger007.gif] "

In the meantime, start a campaign online to keep BBC radio free within the EU. [001_tt2.gif]

Just out of interest. And bearing in mind you aren't able to produce any official information whatsoever anywhere to back up your claims. Where did you get your information on this from?

And please don't say a man down the pub told you :rolleyes:

Well my little wannabe Duchman :wink_smile:

In the 1980's they opened up a local commercial radio station in the town. They involved local schools and community groups. I was one of the many who took part and was on air for a while with others.

Some of my friends stay on and have careers in local media becoming sound engineers, studio managers and other backroom staff.

In the last 12 months most have been made redundant due to a "changing radio environment".

Juice was taken over by Capital and stopped producing shows in Portslade after 35 years.
BBC Brighton no longer produced shows too and is closing down. Now its BBC Sussex based in Chichester 40 miles away.

BBC staff who living in the town with jobs in London are being "relocated" up north.

These aren't the "on air talent" earning 1/2 million a year, its financial, facility and office managers.

And there all moaning.... :rolleyes:

What does any of that waffle have to do with the BBC providing their radio services for free to anyone in the world who wants to listen?
