Needing tips on changes to BBC i player

Socialise and chat about other areas of your life
I've been helping my friend watch programmes on BBC i player. Just recently have encountered they've made changes to having to now sign in. I tried phoning their number on screen, could barely made out the guest pin number was given, so don't know how to go about accessing it anymore. It was so much simpler before them now adding the sign in. I've search for the solution online, can't find the right one. Any suggestions?

Did you see the above.
It doesn't say anything about a pin code now needed. Even still, it's only used as a guest.
What is a BBC PIN?
The Parental Guidance Lock helps you control what people in your household can and can't watch on iPlayer or listen to in BBC Sounds. Turn it on and we'll ask you to create a PIN. Then, whenever anyone tries to watch or listen to anything with a BBC Guidance label, they'll have to enter the PIN.

The only answer I have:

When BBC i player is clicked on, a blue box with 'Sign In' appears. Clicking that brings you to, on the left the wifi code and underneath; seeing you're a guest to phone their 0800 number for a 5 digit pin number. I tried phoning the number, which was hardly audible for the pin number - but my concern is seeing they'd be classing my friend as a guest when he's had i player for some time now, what next?
