    If I wanted to watch old shows on BBC iPlayer (say, a week old) - Do I still need a license?

    I currently use my TV for Amazon Prime/YouTube. I don't have freeview channels, because I don't have an aerial. No license needed right? (Not like I've ever had one of these guys at my house, but still!)
    You would indeed need a tv license. It covers anything and everything on the iPlayer. You stuck to just using it for Amazon Prime/Youtube, you wouldn't.

    Indeed you would be
