BT STARTS EARLY CHARGES FOR TV.
BT Vision charges for BBC
No sooner than we report expected new BT tier charges and away they go.
We are surprised that BT are charging for something all licence fee viewers have already paid for, ie; BBC content, surely this needs to be clarified ? Shooting and foot leap to mind!
A spokeswoman said that all BBC channels would eventually be streamed live online.
The BBC will not make any money from the new arrangement
BT has started to charge users of its television service who want to watch on-demand BBC content.
BT Vision users could previously view programmes like EastEnders for nothing, but must now sign up to the £3-a-month TV Replay subscription to see them.
BT said that, while the same content was available on PCs, it could be seen in "top quality" through its service.
