Still worth it and better than cable. I cut the cord back in 2013 and have never regretted it... Well maybe around football season but that's it.

same. I get premiere league for free via work incentive so im happy. My only gripe is the content library for Norway is awful compared to UK, we have about 40% of what you guys get, and even then its full of stupid bollywood crap...

Yeah, the 'crap' BBC? the one that provides us with literally the best and most impartial TV news service on the world, 10 UK TV channels showing world-class Emmy-winning drama, comedy, sport, arts and kids programming in SD and HD, 10 award-winning national radio stations in AM/FM and DABs, 40 local radio stations, catch-up TV via iPlayer, the BBC News website - the most popular news website in the world, the Proms, the various BBC Symphony orchestras, all aspects of the UK's Eurovision entry and all Glastonbury coverage.

That BBC? The one that only costs *40 pence* a day for all that?

Yeah...'crap' compared to Netflix...

*nb. I work for one the BBC's competitors.

Yeah whilst I hate being forced to pay for the beeb they do make some of the best TV in the world. My license is due end of Nov actually, I've asked my fam to pay for it as my Christmas present.

Other than that I have a £5.99 sub to Netflix. I most watch serial killer docus, stuff like that. That's one of the things my brain is good at, taking in info about subjects that interest me. If my brain was good all of the time that is what I would have done (been some sort of pysch or in forensics etc). Sadly my brain is pretty screwed, which is why I tend to watch things about people who are more screwed than me.

I also have Amazon Prime but my mother pays for that (for the shipping etc).

Does me. I watch dodgy footy streams when the mood takes me but I only go there for the banter with the guys I've known for a few years now.

This. I don't watch a lot of TV anymore and often think that the BBC's commitment to impartiality is sometimes its greatest weakness but with the ever creep of the Murdoch empire a publically funded broadcaster that does important things Netflix simply isn't capable of delivering is incredibly important.

It's also perfectly possible not to pay for the BBC and still watch content from Channel 4, ITV etc online, the days of "being forced to pay the licence fee" are long gone.

Considering you can go to prison for not paying the TV license if you simply own a TV, Yeah, I'd call that pretty crap on par with somewhere like north Korea, Also if you own a radio you still have to pay the TV license which is insane, It's like walking passed a cinema and having to pay a ticket price but not actually going in.

My cousin works for the TV licensing people and the things he's told me sound nothing short of nuts.

That's not true. There are plenty of ways of having a TV without a license. You don't have to buy one, no one is holding a gun at you. End of the day people want their cake and eat it, that's why they get fined by the TV man.

The BBC is an institution and a part of our culture. I've lived elsewhere and the TV was crap. Even in the USA if you wanted to watch anything even remotely decent you needed cable at $40 a month.

As I said the problem is people get all squeaky and refuse to pay for it, then think they can sit down and watch the latest Doctor Foster without paying.

As I said, I hate paying for it (especially as £150 or whatever it is is a lot of money to me) but at the end of the day I would rather pay and have it.

I can only parrot what my cousin tells me about his job

It would be good if we could get Freeview but not receive any BBC channels as I never watch anything BBC related yet have to pay a TV license to BBC.
