I have a guilty secret.

Every so often, I retreat to Greggs for a Steak Slice, sausage roll, cup of tea and a read of last Saturday’s New York Times.

I get quite excited by the Anglo-American mixture of it all.

Why last Saturday’s New York Times? – I don’t hear you cry.

A bizarre, but welcome, loophole for students in the new BBC iPlayer licence rules

Student on laptop in Iowa City, Iowa (22041012645)

A big concern for students, and their parents, is how to watch TV when they are at college or university. £145.50 for a licence is a very steep price for a student to pay for just part of the year, even if they are sharing that cost with others in their flat or house.

Up until September 1st, students could use BBC iPlayer without paying the licence fee.
