That old Pension Credit debacle continues to rumble on ... thread today just about sums it all up ?

recently had a conversation with a group of people from all over the world about this .

in America they dont pay TV license , all channels get the income through adverts. or smaller local channels raise money through donations / crowd funding etc

the younger generation are against old folk getting TV for free , and even there pensions especially here in Scotland. it seems to be a growing trend once you reach a set age you should be banned from voting , banned from pension , banned from life pretty much :shock: :shock: ... wish these snowflakes would realise it is the "" old folk "" that worked for whats around today , its the "" old folk "" that defended this country in the wars ....

we believe mum will still get free TV license because she gets pension credit .
BUT she watches even less than before on BBC channels , and it dont help that BBC caved into SNP threats of creating a new BBC Scotland at £32 million , when less than 30.000 people watch the absolute rubbish on it .
and recent figures came out that 21 programs created for BBC scotland had the HUGE number of ZERO people watching .
yet BBC still insist it is a HUGE success and proof people want the channel . we have never watched it nor likely to because its mainly a mouth piece for SNP , failed comedians, rubbish news .

but i have learned that even if i were to only watch Twitch / Amazon prime i still need a TV license because the BBC "" might show same program , MIGHT have made the program .
and some governments around the world are toying with the idea of a license to watch TV online through platforms like Netflix / Twitch. i know America is trying to clamp down on Netflix account sharing .

one person pays for the account and hands out there log in details to friends / family so they can sign in and Netflix assume its the account holder

Worskop Astronomy Society ... a prime example .... we share log in details for various scientific sites between ourselves ... even
chip in if periodic subscriptions are due ... only a couple of members have the financial resources to do them all.

Can be fun on some days ... an article on the BBC site ... and then unable to log into , say , New Scientist , because you are
already logged in elsewhere.

In quantum theory , a particle CAN be in two places at once ... not so for Internet users !
