Rites ? What ? Rights surely.

Strikes me all the BBC is trying to do is make sure, on trust, that those who access its content pay for it.

The BBC pays for rights to its programming same as any other broadcaster does one way or another, that has to be paid for. Worldwide rights are not available in any universe I can think of.

I find your idea of all these expats who would pay for the BBC or anything else quite risible. These are the same people who have left UK to avoid paying irritating things like taxes and BBC licence fees.

But none the less I am sure some accommodation could be included in the rites 
to allow nationals of the country that have been granted the rites to have 
access to the programming even if they currently aren't in the territory of the 
county in question at the time.

I wonder how much the BBC would have to spend to get worldwide rights

their content? Assuming the worldwide rights are available in the first


I wonder how much the BBC would have to pay in rights violations if
didn't get worldwide rights?
