Default You are joking.

In this issue of your magazine, which I subscribe to, you have listed in the 'We Like' column
'Restart Live BBC Shows on your TV' by pressing the green button.

This is possibly one of the most annoying things that the BBC has come up with. It appears on every program even if you are only a few seconds late joining it, it is usually a totally pointless invitation as so much content is repeated anyway, I for one rarely use the iplayer in fact I would happy if the BBC was a subscription service as I struggle to find anything worth viewing.

I have contacted the BBC about a fix for permanently removing this intrusive invitation but the BBC apart from acknowledging emails rarely respond to criticism by us plebs.

I agree,if the BBC became a subscription service and scrapped the licence fee,I for one would save money.
And that is why they won't!!

It only happens if you have "a connected and capable TV". Mine is capable but not connected as I was on a metered connection until recently and haven't yet got round to connecting it, so I don't see the message or have the option. All you have to do to kill it on yours is to disconnect the TV from the internet unless you actually want to watch IPlayer or a channel that is only available online.
