    The easiest approach is probably for LLF people to avoid BBC video content altogether, although I'm conscious that that isn't a very helpful answer.

    The law talks about an "online programme service operated by the BBC". I don't think that these apps or free-standing videos are a "programme service", but IANAL.

    The bigger clue, perhaps, is that they don't ask you whether you have a Licence or not (iPlayer does).

    Block iPlayer
    A TV Licence is only required if you are watching Live TV or iPlayer.

    BBC Radio, World Service etc are free to the world, you will find media is stored elsewhere.

    Download the app if it is required

    As a precaution disable the iplayer by adding the URL's below to your Broadband Router, first one should be enough but the otthers will make sure.

    Then any attempt to load iPlayer content fails, it may appear to start but no video is loaded.

    Disable your SSID while you are there as TVL Goons latest gadget is recording SSID's

    Number 5 You don't need a licence for Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, YouTube and more

    If it's the same as Sky News TV channel (on Freeview/Satellite) then yes, you need a Licence.

    There are various News clips/newsreel services that you don't need a Licence for.
