    Ok that's quite fantastic. So long as there's a good 3G signal you'll be able to watch live BBC1 and 2 on the go. DVB phones just went bye-bye.

    So now they'll be trying to screw everyone with a computer and no TV for the licence fee.

    Why wouldn't it be, do you pay the license fee?

    Besides, we don't know what Checks are (Apart from checking something is correct) Indeed you would need to send the BBC a Cheque :)

    The licence fee is payable if you watch any live streaming channel, not just the BBC one.

    Given Channel 4 have been streaming their channel live for nearly two years, that needed a licence as much as this service will.

    The BBC have said they will launch a pay per view service for non Brits when they can sort out licensing agreements.

    Besides would you find our humour funny?
