"David Elstein, a strong proponent of the subscriptions, told MPs that between 10 to 20 per cent of licence fee payers would not subscribe - but most people would, and many would pay more."
Re: Only if you can pry it from my cold, dead fingers...
Epic FAIL, Windows XP was eye-candy, its predecessor which XP was built upon (also NT5) was the last without it.......................Windows 2000, it was faster too
Don't be silly
Hopefully people wont fall for this u-turn..................remember its there and can be activated at a later date!
Re: I suspect it's a diversionary tactic
Going off the negative reps given you I'd say a lot of these Socialist parasites from the BBC have paid the site a visit
Re: BBC for the headlines
Don't think you'll ever get a right-winger on the Guardian. The paper itself is £24 million in debt due to left-wingers preferring to troll right-wing media, fact.
On another point while people are knocking this I take it you left-wingers don't mind the BBC being behind a pay wall, the BBC TV Licence
Re: If only the Dailymail were to follow suit.
Why would they need too. The DM is the most viewed online newspaper in the world. It really upsets the loony left lol
Re: just remove cookies
Cookies wont help if the system checks the IP
"Torygraph" The Register showing how neutral they are once again. Perhaps they could explain why all the left-wing media apart from the BBC (Pay us or else!) are in debt?
Re: Must be about time all TV became on-demand via the Internet
The Socialist fascists aren't going to give it up easily, only a small minority would fund the BBC voluntary and they know it
Re: re. TV licence needs for iPlayer
The BBC is pushing for an Internet Licence to replace the TV one and I suspect this is another push towards it
Re: I wonder
Indeed and going off the negatice reps you've got I'd say their PR people have spotted this article, Comments like,
"you need something to counterbalance the Daily Mail, and the Express...and the Sun"
Typical fascist BBC PR, no one is allowed to criticise the mighty BBC!
It works?, You mean forcing anyone who wishes to watch live to to fund the mighty BBC first. Tell me if the BBC are so great why do they need to force people to fund them, why not a voluntary subscription????
You don't honestly believe your PR
Typical BBC Fan
Then you have a good deal knowing millions of people who wish to watch TV are forced to subsidise your beloved BBC first...................................... fascism is alive and well, I'm alright Jack
Haha they conned you too
This isn't a genuine news article, its PR by the BBC. The so called TV Licensing spokesman actually works for the BBC
If you google "13,000 Britons still have a black and white TV licence" you'll see just how dirty the BBC are, their basically calling people liars
Oh give it a rest
You don't keep a animal alive that's suffering either. Lets be hones if the BBC was so great it would do fine under a voluntary subcription
The most read online newspaper in the country, yes god forbid the public had a real say, that seems to be the Leftist view
Oh give it a rest you Lefty
" the loss of an independent Beeb would be a loss to British public life."
Speak for yourself, talk about being biased and one sided. I think the BBC is a left-wing mouth piece and if the BBC was so great you wouldn't need to force an entire country to fund it via the BBC TV Licence™
Replace the BBC TV Licence™ with a voluntary subscription and you'll see just how liked the BBC really is, the BBC would truly be "independent" then too!
Stick to a ruddy name will you
citing "customer confusion". I'm sure its more confusing that they keep changing ruddy names
The bias here is astounding, you can;t give away Linux and yet rave about it and knock Windows....................pathetic
Theres a few of these sites now and yet not one covers US television and so they compete with each other even though I now alot of peope would rather watch American classics
Nokia next for me
My next phone will be a Nokia (sorry I left you) using the Windows platform. The Android one is a pain in the backside, horrible.
I'd never touch anything connected to Apple
"while all its domestic customers are at work."
Ah so they have a CAP that starts at 10am and lasts though till 21.00 or midnight if you go over but now they admit there is no need for one in the day, bloody typical
Mozilla are extracting the urine, the OS their talking about will be using the Android (Googles) operating system
Make it a volontary subcription
I may get downvoted for this, the BBC is a national treasure"
If the BBC is that great you wouldn't need to force a entire country to fund it but then again that's how socialists work isn't it
"a Pakistani officer."
Must be true then.........................yea right
Going off the past cycles this will be the first NT7 kernel
The BigYin "Oh. Wait. You're using Windows aren't you? Commiserations."
You Linux guys really need to get get a life. If you are this desperate to get people using Linux then there is something seriously wrong with you
"yet another final test"
It's getting really funny now. The people who stay with Firefox must be the real hardcore sheep
"We are also beginning to see significant applications that do not work on XP, like Microsoft’s forthcoming Internet Explorer 9."
Er yes that about it though.
I personally hate NT6.x and so will stick with XP till the last
Mozilla are proud to announce the Beta of the Beta Beta before the Beta, Firefox Beta 14 of Beta
You have to be kidding me
beta 12, LMAO. Mozilla is nothing more than a laughing stock now

"Was Stalin Left or Right wing? What about Hitler."
They were both on the left the Nazis being Socialists (look it up).
Winston Churchill on the other hand was Right Wing and anyone trying to deny this should look up his views on Islam!
Oh feel the hatred

"Are you purposefully imitating the TWAT-O-TRON?"
You are a prime example of a left wing nutter. Say as we say otherwise feel our wraith. The Socialists of the 1930s would be proud of you ;)
I have googled them thanks

"Go google some pictures of their rallies. "
I have and as usual it's the left and their Muslim friends who are the real extremists
Posted Friday 11th February 2011 16:06 GMT
"Andrew, have you ever been to one of their demonstrations?"
I have, seen the Lib-Lab-Con backed UAF attacking the police while the police were boxing in the peaceful EDL.
Say why are the UAF thugs so scared of people protesting against Islamic Extremism & why do we NEVER see the UAF protesting against the Muslim Extremists on our streets that call for our deaths ?
"far right English Defence League"
Could someone at The Register please explain why it's 'far right' to protest against Islamic Extremism. Are you guys controlled by the Lib-Lab-Con too?
The true extremists are Islamic and part of the UAF, FACT
so much for the feature frozen announcement. they don't seem to know what day it is
Way too slow. Opera & Chrome have left IE and FF standing
Chrome & Opera Leave Firefox Standing
Tried Chrome on my Notebook and it hangs at times which is something Opera doesn't do. So on a lower end Machine it works better but then again it is written in machine code
No you've got it wrong again
"Despite the fact that Sony's console is able to outperform Microsoft's Xbox 360,"
Just goes to show that this place isn't that clued up after all. The 360 has better bus speeds, graphics & DVD data transfer, something the PS3 developers have been struggling with
This from an ISP that has CAPS from 10am till midnight. Apparently that’s "Fair Usage”
Even though the game is a port from the 360 (DX9) this will only work on Windows NT6.x
Opera is for nerds
Stopped using Opera after the abuse I got on their forum. You get this is you have constructive criticism. You see all the fan boys jump on you and the mods join in. You then find yourself banned and can no longer synchronise your bookmarks
Yes you can
You can but you need an addon to install the addons and no I'm not joking
No need for Chromes size
The only problem with Chrome is its HUGE. There just can't be a justifiable reason for a 100MB plus install.
Opera is what 11/13mb while Firefox is around 33mb
It's already here
Its called silverlight
Opera any dea
I'd have Opera any day and it kicks they're arses in speed
Let those who want it pay for it
They should just scrap the BBC TV Licence and if the Socialists/Communists want it let them pay for it
Are you for real, the BBC does nothing for free. They hold an entire country to ransom which is how they get their £3.7 BILLION budget
No I'm F-ing Note
Did it sound like I was American when posting on a British website and mentioned the Aid we give to India, duh
Only Indians and liberals would try defending this aid (wasting taxpayers money) while India can spend billions on its military
