Rename "Freeview" to "Payview"?

Ask a Question

Live TV requires the TV License so it really isn't free, and as such, why don't they honestly just rename it to reflect as it is? Well, I get that "Freeview" sounds better as it has the word "Free", but it's misleading.

Personally, live television channels just don't do it for me. I usually find better and more interesting content on YouTube (free with ads or YouTube Vanced so no ads) than Live TV does.

BBC+

That maybe a bit better? Some would perhaps say it's copying Disney, but adding plus to a name is nothing new.

I don’t watch live tv. But I still have to pay my tv license just to watch bbc iPlayer which is annoying. But yes freeview then requires tv license so I agree it is misleading
