Harry Potter Bargain

The BBC have been ripped off, They have paid £10m for the film, I only paid £13.99 - and that was on DVD!. Why don't they shop around with our license fee?

£10 million? Do they really think that showing a half decent film is going to justify charging over £100 per year for a TV license?

the way to look at this is how many licenses are paid for , then divide the 10 million and see what portion of this years TV License, £114 is costing us.
Other question would be for that amount of money can they show it as many times as they like in years to come ?
And on another point,be honest about it, I'm sure we all have sat down and watched a film on TV which you also have in your DVD collection.

Does this mean they can 'sublet' the right out to others such as sky?

From the BBC "The BBC has won the rights to screen the terrestrial TV premiere of the first Harry Potter film". Sky will be showing it way before they do.

The Beeb claim that £10m is grossly exagerated, I'd be interested to know what they really paid.

One good deed? So have they paid £10million so that it doesn't get shown on TV?

Decent? Is this the film that they'll be showing instead of Harry Potter now then?

This thread is just confusing me... :confused:
