What I was referring to earlier, when I described signing in, was simply the BBC website, of which iPlayer is one part - see below. Sorry if that's confused anyone! There's tons of content on the BBC's website that's perfectly legal to watch and listen to, or as the dreadful lexicon of the data-age has it - consume. It's just the stuff on iPlayer you should have the licence to watch, just as you need a licence to watch BBC programmes via a lot of other platforms... or indeed content from certain other channels, such as Channel 4.Screenshot 2020-07-10 18.12.08.png
With respect to Landsurfer's post, if they can't get enough evidence, they won't prosecute you, however an admission that you were consuming content that required a licence is evidence, albeit insufficient on its own for a prosecution.
yes even to add comments to articles on the website. There is a double "login" for iplayer and licenced content a) the general login b) the pop up confirming you have a tv licence.
I dont see how you could accidentally make a mistake and watch tv in iplayer?
