BBC to stream channel live

The BBC is either forging bravely ahead into the future of TV-less TV, or simply enjoying sticking the knife into ISPs. According to, er, the Daily Wail (not my usual source, I swear), Auntie is to start streaming BBC1 over the intarwebs.

The BBC is either forging bravely ahead into the future of TV-less TV, or simply enjoying sticking the knife into ISPs. According to, er, the Daily Wail (not my usual source, I swear), Auntie is to start streaming BBC1 over the intarwebs.

As if the iPlayer wasn't enough. Aside from the bandwidth and usage-limit implications, this also raises, yet again, the spectre of the licence fee, its purpose and its enforceability. If someone has no telly but consumes Beeb content over the net, should they pay the fee? And who's going to check that they do? So many questions...
