This force-funded state media network should be shut down and made subscription only.
It cost legitimate UK viewers far more for BBC than it does for Netflix or basic cable and their content is pathetically budget short-run 7 or 8 episode per season half hour format garbage almost completely London and surrounding area based and consisting of generic diction actors and presenters that don't represent the way 99% of the UK live or speak. Just the generic southern diction middle class.
Don't get me wrong, Dr Who, science shows and music show are good, they just don't justify an endless stream of "by law" £6 fortnightly payments.
The idea that a few VPN settings can give free access to something you can be heavily fined for not funding if you're a legitimate UK viewer is wrong. Seriously, don't waste your time "correcting" me about loopholes about live viewing. Live in the UK? Own a TV, computer, mobile phone, console or radio? That's receiving equipment, pay up or be fined.
