BBC said it'll pull radio streams from TuneIn to slurp more of your data but nobody noticed till Amazon put its foot in it

Playing without data

When you enable the BBC skill in Alexa, it demands you link to your BBC account. However...

1. If you already have the skill enabled, disable it. This will also unlink it.

2. Say to Echo device "Alexa play BBC Radio 4" (or similar). It will ask you if you want to enable the BBC skill.

3. Say "Yes". The skill will be enabled and will work. But it won't be linked to your BBC account.
