Re: Reasons not two watch BBC?
Because some people use sign language as their primary communication method.
It's not up to them, the government make them do it.
"The Communications Act 2003 requires broadcasters meet the legal requirements either by:
programmes being translated into sign language
programmes being made by or for deaf people and presented in sign language
The target is for five per cent of programmes to be signed using the same target dates as subtitles.
The BBC website has a dedicated Sign Zone area on its iPlayer, allowing access to all signed programmes."
