No iPlayer on Android: We call shenanigans over BBC blog post - Crave at CNET UK
This is outrageous in my opinion.
BBC is paid for from it's licence fee and from general taxation.
Everyone who has a device capable of receiving television signals of any kind has to have a licence by law. Effectively a tax.
There are steep fines for not having one and I understand you have to have one if you only have a pc. Even if it has no TV card/dongle! (I haven't checked that so it might be apocryphal)
The BBC is a state owned corporation paid for by the British public, it makes money by selling it's content overseas but in the UK I've already paid for it.
So how come they can tell me what kind of mobile 'phone I have to buy in order to access content I've paid for?
