Rejected petition Make all BBC services hidden behind an opt in paywall
BBC broadcasting should enforce a paywall to block and protect people who don't watch or use BBC services. A pay-to-use screen would cut off the service automatically, and provide instant relief for people fearing unintended evasion, fines, and harassment.
Sky, Netflix, and other video broadcasting services demonstrate that hiding content behind a subscription pay wall is feasible, and that people are willing to pay if the the content is worth it.
