BBC threaten iPlayer repeat fees

What's fairer than 'pay as you go'?

Quote:
Analysis Is it fair to ask people to pay a second time for media they've already paid for? Or is it fair to charge people for media they never use - and send them to prison if they decline to pay? Of these two injustices, which is the greater?
Quote:
Last week, PaidContent UK revealed a few details on plans by the BBC to charge for repeats through iPlayer. The plans, codenamed "Project Barcelona", envisage previously broadcast shows being made available on-demand for £1.89 a time.

I think you'll find that's called discounting.

We don't pay the 'full' price, therefore they are giving us money...

Re: BBC threaten iPlayer repeat fees

To be fair other channels also limit the time you can view their programmes after it has been aired.Chanel4 and 5 certainly do and they also do so online..

What I'm wondering is where this would leave VM's content on demand with iPlayer.

Did you not actually read the article then? The "TV Tax" (sic) only pays for the programme to be shown on the BBC a set number of times. (This is sometimes a lot but mostly just the once or twice.)

After that, the rights revert back to the indy company that made it for them to sell on to either another channel (ie Sky, UKTV, Paramount, etc.) or sell on DVD, etc.

So your reasoning is completely and utterly incorrect. It was also described (and right derided!) in the article.

Re: BBC threaten iPlayer repeat fees

On demand players do offer us the viewer increased choice, but when the success of a programme is judged by audience size, do the iplayer things count towards this? For the commercial channels although I see they are starting to slip in some adverts, that amount is less than they get on the main TV programming, so are they loosing revenue? iplayer type catch up broadcasting has been the big revolution in TV in the last couple of years, and in many respects is no worse than us recording stuff on our V+ or whatever to view later. But perhaps the TV companies shot themselves in the foot by not wanting a small charge at the outset. To introduce it now, will just attract a backlash.

Re: BBC threaten iPlayer repeat fees

Iplayer views do not count as part of official BARB figures but the BBC monitors the stats internally and has a pretty good idea of how valuable the iplayer is for extending the reach of its programmes.

I suspect what they are talking about here is putting up their entire back-catalogue and charging for access to it, rather than charging people for the 7-day catch-up. In which case, I don't see the difference between buying acces to content on the iplayer and buying access via a DVD. We have a modest DVD collection but with the exception of the kids' stuff the discs rarely get played more than once. I think I would prefer to pay one lower price to watch something once and not bother having to keep a copy of it on the shelf.
