British TV licence fee payers go on holiday to Spain. They even spend the winter months there. Why should they not watch the BBC if they wish when away?
Because the UK BBC Licence fee only covers the receiving of television signals in the UK. It doesn’t cover it for receiving television signals outside the UK.
That’s the way the law is. I don’t make the laws—they do. And like all laws we all have to abide by them whether we like and agree with them or not.
Vis a vis, no-one, licence fee payer or not has a legal right to receive BBC television signals outside of the UK.
