I wonder how many people would stop watching the BBC altogether if...

the BBC made people sign up to iplayer with UID's taken from a TV licence, doing away with the need to sniff wifi. And while the BBC is at it people should be told (when buying a TV) that they need a TV licence for the BBC only, giving the consumer a choice of purchasing a television that isn't tuned into the BBC at all thus negating the need for a licence.

In the UK we have about 80 channels of freeview (no TV licence needed) so who needs the BBC.
