    Complaints to the BBC for expats outside UK

    Have you ever tried to complain to the BBC on website? They appear most welcome in receiving complaints!! Have you you ever tried to make a complaint and they continue to give you the links you don't want?

    OK! My complaint is that British expats need to to keep in touch with being happen to residing at the time, and it should be none of their business, if they choose to use freedom of the website. If they are not interested, then may I suggest they get out out of the freedom of a website. May I remind the BBC of which they are trying to block for those outside the country, can be found elsewhere? So why bother blocking those brits who happen to be happen where they are, and besides , it is none of your business. Stop inspecting personal web addresses, as this should be illegal. This is due to the fact that most internet expect to have privacy, individuals on the internet like their privacy of search. Do you understand? Leave them alone!!

    There is also this question of those of who do not use English as their first language, of who want to use full resources of the BBC, and not the limited version offered to their country. Stop the blocking BBC. As this goverment promotes that the English language should be encouraged throughout the world, and not blocked. Stop this territorial blocking now, and do something for your country!!!

    Residents of the UK who want to watch TV have to buy a TV licence, which costs £145 per year. This money is used to fund the BBC (which has no advertising revenue).
    No one outside the UK contributes to the BBC's funding.

    The BBC's TV tax is immoral. The money is used to promote political agendas that a good 50% of TV owners don't want to support.
    Check this out:

    www . tpuc . org / stoppayingtvlicencefees (take the spaces out)
    Join this campaign today and let the Government know you will not tolerate their blatant use of our money to publish and broadcast their propaganda, lies and corruption.

    Treason has been committed and is still being perpetrated on a daily basis, and you by paying this tax are allowing this to happen.

    Join us at The Peoples United Community and say no to the TV Licence Fee and no to Treason!

    Please let us know if you are refusing to pay HERE, so we can compile a list of support of non- payment.

    THE EVIDENCE IS NOW PRESENTED TO SCOTLAND YARD FOR IMMEDIATE INVESTIGATION!

    NOW THAT THE NEW INCREASE in the BBC Licence Fee has been approved by the Very Dodgy Dimwits of Westminster, it is now revealed that the BBC has been receiving tens of millions of pounds every year from the Sinister Dictators of Europe - without the knowledge of the British Public!

    DEPUTY ASSISTANT POLICE COMMISSIONER John Yates, Director of Intelligence at Scotland Yard has been asked to investigate the BBC’s sources and applications of money, excluding the Licence Fee, and evidence linking the BBC to the European Dictators has been provided in support of the allegation that the BBC has ‘sold-out’ to Shady Politicians.

    THUS FAR, THE INVESTIGATION into the Financial & Political Mischief that is clearly affecting the independence of the BBC has been conducted by Mr Ashley Mote, MEP, who is independent of all political parties and a keen supporter of British Independence from Europe. It is the records of Mr Mote that have now been delivered to Scotland Yard for Urgent Police Action at Senior Levels.

    THE BBC IS REGULATED by a Royal Charter which specifically requires the BBC to keep clear of all political bias of any kind, and the records of Mr Mote show that the BBC has received vast sums of money from agencies of the European Union in return for BBC support of this Union: This Contract of Evil is contrary to both the Spirit & the Letter of the BBC Charter, which has the force of law.

    ALL HONEST PEOPLE WILL WELCOME the news that Scotland Yard is now being required to investigate the finances of the BBC. We can report that the BBC has already commissioned an internal enquiry into the pro-EU Policy that has been running for years, and the very existence of this internal enquiry serves to confirm that something is badly wrong with the management and reporting operations of the BBC.

    IT IS SIGNIFICANT THAT HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE are already refusing to pay for BBC Licences because of BBC bias, and where the accusation of bias – most properly described as Corruption - has been openly stated by the relevant members of the public, the Licensing Authority has declined to pursue the issue of Non-Payment!

    NOW IS THE RIGHT TIME for All Licence-Holders to Stop Paying for A Corrupted Institution that has seen fit to Sell Itself to Sinister People?

    THE WEIGHT OF PUBLIC OPINION must be brought to bear on the Criminals who have been manipulating the BBC and who may well be the causes of failure in all of the other public services that are now falling into the dust: All Public Services, including the BBC, are the property of the British People – and it is for the British People to make sure that these services operate effectively & clean of corruption!
    Do you want to stop paying now? Then follow these easy steps and stop paying for corruption, treason and the mismanagement of your money.
    The first letter you need to send:

    I have to say I do not miss British television (television? what's the point?) but I find BBC radio superb. I find it almost surreal and rather magical that I am able to listen to, say, radio 3 or radio 4 on the computer in real time as if I was in Britain. And most programmes are kept available online for a week or so.

    OK, it goes like this.

    There's this thing called copyright. It also affects broadcast rights.

    For example, the BBC has the broadcast rights to screen highlights of Premier League football matches in the UK on Saturday evenings. It also has the right to screen some of this material online IN THE UK.

    However, in Russia the rights to Premier League were purchased by NTV. Therefore if the BBC makes this footage available in Russia it breaches NTV's copyright on the material which is against the law. So they block certain material on their site from IP addresses where it shouldn't be shown.

    Question - which government is promoting the English as a tool of international communication? The Russian one? I think not :lol:

    The point is that both Gordon Brown, American leaders and the current Conservative leaders believe in promoting the English language further as the first second language. They all agreed including top leaders from the USA.

    SO! What better company is there than the BBC to promote the English language!! The BBC has already been the leader of promoting the leader of promoting the language. NOW to start this nonsence of blocking some of their programmes to those only in England is absolutely ridiculous. Especially when they can watch such programmes by simply googling and finding the programmes within 24 hours after it is shown in UK. So why bother with the blocking!!! And I said The BBC has a job to do, and that is to promote the culture of Britain and the English language throughout the world. And they won't do this by upsetting English speaking speaking through blocking there entertainment, or those wishing to enjoy English speaking entertainment of throughout the world who don't know English as a first language.

    I repeat! Both British and American Governments desire movement to promote The English language. So I say DON'T BLOCK and give complete freedom to the internet. Anyone checking individuals private addresses should be made illegal. As it destroys the intrnets belief of internet freedom.

    Good question. Is there anyway to block anyone's IP address. As this should be allowed , and would be popular to most of us on the internet. We need privacy, and we need freedom. Something has gone wrong in the past few years, and it has to be changed.

    WANNA WATCH BBC in RUSSIA? READ HERE

    OK you guys n gals wanna watch BBC on their website, right? but you cant because you see your IP address is outside the UK. Copyright says only UK residents can view BBC on their website using the BBC viewer facility.
    PROBLEM SOLVED!
    Use this link. This is a proxy server for the UK. What does this mean? It means that you can "disguise" your Russian IP address by using a UK IP address under the guise of a proxy. In plain English: when using this proxy server the BBC website will think you are in the UK
    OK, here it is. I think you have to contact the guy and pay a very nominal fee of 3 euro a month or something.

    There you go! Hey! BBC player HERE YOU COME!!

    it has NOTHING to do either with your web address or any type of political meandering. It is to do with copyright, plain and simple. And it is your IP ADDRESS that the BBC ewebsite sees as being outside the UK. Only UK residents may view BBC website transmaissions due to copyright laws. You can get around this. See my posting about using a PROXY SERVER.

    Of course you can get around this, and that is what makes the BBC website most annoyoying. Of course you can watch anything from the BBC within the next 24 hours. The only difficulty I have had is watching live action sport live in English. Of course you can watch it live in Russian here, if it is popular in Russia, such as Russia.

    But being able to watch popular english tv that has been watched previously
    by Americans or British people the day before is very easy. And may I thank all the uploader of who make the effort to upload this entertainment for us expats and foriegners who want to view tv and films in the English. As you are doing a great job, and you are much appreciated. I must admit that it is normally not worth watching 2010 movies as they are likely to be of poor quality. When they get a bit older they are worth watching, but this is normally due to an upload of a DVD, of which happens later. But it is the top popular tv programmes and movies from telivision that has good quality viewing.

    Even so, some movies are reasonable and watchable at the moment. Such as training a dragon, and recently Avater of 2009.

    So to summarise, why do the BBC bother blocking , when we can watch the same and more by simply googling. And shouldn't the BBC be promoting their goverments by promoting English speaking culture and language, and also not upsetting their British of whom are al over the world. Isn't the desire of the USA and Britain to further promote the English language and culture to the rest of the world. All I can see is that they are going the wrong way about. Damn Copywrights, and go for the promotion of the English language and its culture. Otherwise the BBC will soon be dead, due to a now hung Conservative goverment. We no longer have a Socialist Labour government.

    Bels, the BBC has a whole site dedicated to teaching/learning English.

    BTW You can't go into a supermarket and take some veg and walk out with the excuse 'but you have so many and it's good for my health'' just as you can't expect to watch programmes that are financed by someone else and are their 'intellectual property'. It's naive at best.

    Maybe so. But if you read the website you find a strong condemnation to the interferance of freedom of using the web. Much bigger than what the BBC or any other uses. And the arguments are much stronger on the other side. What is the harm in being more open. For example BBC programmes throughout the world are poorly translated into the countries own language, and that is not what some of us want, we want the original English language.

    About children, Yes my son is English and Russian, and enjoys the services of the BBC, he loves for example Dora the Explorer etc. However go to video viwing or other sections of the BBC. And what do you get? Not allowed in outside UK!!!! Upstting young children who know English or are learning English as a second language. How upset will that child be, yet the BBC do such disgusting things against even children.

    The point is that there is only a minority of people throughout the world who wants to watch English speaking programmes, they are either bored Native speaking expats, or someone who wants to learn the cultures and the language of English. So what's the problem.

    As for 2010 movies, I wouldn't bother, as it will be of poor quality anyway. Just the English tv programmes and perhaps some older movies. But definately not 2010 movies. Movies that have moved on to DVD quality, yes Maybe.
