Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. HERE
    ... suppose they'll up the licence fee :(
  2. Where does the money go?
  3. I fully understand why they were fined. They did wrong and were, rightly, punished for it. However... That money doesn't belong to the BBC! It's our money, that we're forced to give them through our TV licenses. So what's the crack?
  4. I've just written to Ofcom:
    However, I won't hold my breath waiting for a sensible reply.
  5. Did the BBC provide the phone line mechanisms, or was it a 3rd party?

    And will said 3rd party telecom company be hit with legal action from the BBC?
