Submission + - BBC blocks UK residents (bbc.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Ok, this takes the p*ss.

As a UK resident who has been funding the BBC for many years I was shocked to receive the following message when trying to access a page on their website:

"We're sorry but this site is not accessible from the UK as it is part of our international service and is not funded by the licence fee. It is run commercially by BBC Worldwide, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the BBC, the profits made from it go back to BBC programme-makers to help fund great new BBC programmes. You can find out more about BBC Worldwide and its digital activities at www.bbcworldwide.com."

The Beeb should be reminded that there would be no BBC International were if it were not for the licence fee.

Totally disgusted....
