    iPlayer sign in. 18th Jun 17 at 9:07 PM
    How does the iplayer sign in thing work as I have access to it by mobile, kindle, amazon fire stick and PC.
    All of these now need a sign in to iplayer except my 4 year old sony bluray player.
    Is this likely to remain as long as I don't update the software.

    The app you mean ?

    Its here to stay, its not a short term thing.
    Can people stop loaning money/being a guarator to family/friends, it rarely ends well and you lose out as your money is gone or you get shafted with being a guarantor.

    According to BBC iplayer site you wont have to sign in every time you use the app, you stay logged in for 2 years.

    Maybe that explains it.
