    Its only for UK it seems? Too bad I live in Sweden, I would pay for all British content every day of the week being a anglophile as I am.. but maybe with a VPN...hmm

    As a UK resident, I already pay a licence fee for my tv for BBC, and I'm subjected to a lot of adverts for to fund ITV. As I did not watch, and never will watch, any of these programmes first time around, I won't be paying more on top to watch them now.

    In general though, why would a UK resident pay to watch programmes that have already been broadcast...they're all repeats? And it's not like these programmes aren't already repeated ad nauseum already. I don't understand. And if they made new exclusive content, then seeing as the BBC is paid for by a TV licence, there would be an uproar that they are making PPV content that the public have to finance. But then, the BBC is no longer a public service broadcaster like it claims to be as it's run by people selected from the corporate and banking world.

    Conclusion: It will flop, and take god knows how many millions of licence payers £'s with it.
