Watching the BBC is cheaper if you don’t live in the UK

Watching the BBC is cheaper if you don’t live in the UK 

It costs £145.50 for a TV licence in the UK, so we can watch great shows like Homes Under The Hammer. But those living in Europe, Canada and Australia are getting access to the BBC for a knockdown price of just £4 a month.

An annual pass costing £52 gives people living abroad access to the BBC Global iplayer, and also they can watch vintage shows in the BBC archive – like Blackadder and Fawlty Towers – that aren’t available to viewers in the UK.

The Global iplayer is available through iTunes and is undergoing expansion, featuring 2000 hours of current programming and classic BBC shows. Inevitably, the Tories are furious that FORIEGNERS are allowed to watch the BBC at a lower price, and MP Conor Burns is campaigning to have the licence fee reduced using the profits from the Global iplayer.
