    I think it got hit by the slashdot/digg effect.

    forgive me - but how can they insist you have a TV licence if you do not have a TV Tuner card in your PC?

    Checked the TV Licence website which states

    If you use a TV or any other device to receive or record TV programmes (for example, a VCR, set-top box, DVD recorder or PC with a broadcast card) - you need a TV Licence. You are required by law to have one.
    Since when was Broadband any of those??

    Re: Blocking the BBC World Cup Video Streams.

    Watching a broadcast of live TV.

    It just gives examples and i'm not entirely sure it's meant to be an exhaustive list.

    I did the same thing when i read the BBC article about it...went and read the TV License site.

    Apparently they cant trace TV cards...but i'm not entirely sure i'd want to push it.

    Same here, ive requested our ISP to register. Hopefully they will do and not take ages like most requests. And this is not even for the football its for the educational movies on the site. :-(
