No! You only need a licence if you watch TV live on your computer. This is from the TV Licence website:

Watching TV on the internet

You need to be covered by a licence if you watch TV online at the same time as it's being broadcast on conventional TV in the UK or the Channel Islands.


That means you can legally watch iPlayer shows as long as you don't watch them as they are being transmitted. The burden of proof would be on them to show that you did otherwise. To do that they would have to confiscate your computer and to do that they would need a search warrant.

I never watch TV shows live on the iPlayer. :)

I didn't know you could watch live in iPlayer. I thought it was purely a post-transmission service.

Well, there you go. :lol:

If you try to watch a programme live on the BBC iPlayer, you get a message pops up asking if you have a licence. :wink:

If any of them are on SyFy, you'll be lucky!!

I think at 10 series, Spooks has had a good run.
