And if the BBC put it all on YouTube, then anyone can watch it, for free and without needing the licence, and then you're into a whole other thing. Also, they've been heavily pushing the iPlayer, so maybe they don't want to detract from that. Something also comes to mind about the BBC charter, too - they're not allowed to make anything that you'd have to pay for to be able to continue watching something you've been watching on licenced TV. Cases in point: In The Loop and the original Peter Cushing Doctor Who movies - it's why they changed character stories and names. So perhaps there's something in their charter about the other way round, not being allowed to use free services to push people to their licenced TV for them to continue watching? I reckon someone like @JNLister might know. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
