BBC IPLAYER - TV licence required?

From today, if you’re not already signed in, a window will pop-up when you go to watch and listen to programmes on our BBC iPlayer and BBC iPlayer Radio website and mobile and tablet apps.

If you already have a BBC account but haven’t signed in yet, you just need to sign in here. If you haven’t, then you can register for an account . We’ve made it really easy, and we only need your email and a few other details to make sure you get the best possible experience.

Is this linked to my TV Licence?

Another question some of you might be asking is whether any of these changes are linked to TV Licensing. Last year the law changed so you now need a TV licence to watch BBC programmes on iPlayer.

The reason we’re making these changes isn’t about enforcing the licence fee – it’s about giving you a better BBC and helping you get the best out of it.

We’ve also been clear that we’re not going to use mass surveillance techniques or ask internet providers for IP addresses. However, the information you provide us with can help TV Licensing ensure that people are abiding by the law and minimise licence fee evasion. By matching email addresses we may be able to identify someone who has told us they don't need a TV licence while at the same time having signed in and watched iPlayer. So we will now use this alongside our existing enforcement techniques to help identify people who are watching licence fee-funded content without a licence.

if you want to watch BBC IPLAYER even in the UK you need to give some personel details to the BBC ,who may share it with TV licence department

you can get round the UK only part of BBC IPLAYER as many do ,but this is another step that is now required to view ...

those that pay for it in the UK would still be able to view in NC

You will need a VPN to watch BBC iPlayer in North Cyprus, I use one called channel hopper, but there are others.
It does ask if you have a TV licence, and for a postcode - I use a friend's address and that seems to work!
