A petition opposing the BBC's decision to axe free TV licences for the over-75s has reached half a million signatures. Abrahams said the blame for the move lies with the Government and issued a renewed call on all Conservative Party leadership candidates to take back responsibility for the funding of free TV licences for over-75s if they become prime minister. - www.itv.com

Free TV licences cannot be saved with cuts to salaries, says BBC

Getty Images/BBC Cutting the pay of stars and senior managers would only save a fraction of the cost of free TV licences for older people, the BBC has said. Continuing the universal scheme would cost 745m, a fifth of the BBC's budget and equivalent to the cost of BBC Two, BBC Four, the BBC News Channel, the BBC Scotland channel, Radio 5 Live and a number of local radio stations. - www.bbc.co.uk

BBC iPlayer can show programmes for a year instead of 30 days

The BBC will be allowed to keep programmes on its iPlayer service for up to a year after they are first broadcast rather than the current 30 days, in an attempt to help the corporation compete with Netflix. The availability of individual programmes on iPlayer may rely on negotiations with the independent production companies that make shows for the BBC. Many BBC programmes are likely to transfer to the forthcoming paid-for BritBox service after 12 months, which will require an additional subscription on top of the licence fee. - www.theguardian.com

Evening Standard comment: Free licence fees won't help the BBC survive

They shouldn't lose out, which is why the BBC is right to offer free licences to every household that has someone on pension credit benefit - around 900,000 do so at present but the number that could be eligible could reach 1.5 million by 2020. If we want the BBC to survive - and we do - then those who can afford to pay should do so. - www.standard.co.uk

Buying cables? Going for gold could mean a rip-off

The actual speed you get is entirely dependent on what you're connecting - a slow internet connection is not going to be made faster by a high spec cable - so unless you know you need to transfer data over 1Gbps don't spend the extra on cat6 cables. Charging cables for phones are probably the most lost or broken cables around. - www.theguardian.com

The FM Chip Delusion by James Cridland

In comparison to Australia, Canadians pay almost FIVE TIMES MORE for a monthly plan that gives a THIRD LESS DATA. Perhaps Canadian radio broadcasters sense an opportunity if FM chips are enabled. If the Canadian cellular networks aren't pressuring the likes of Google and Apple for FM chips to be enabled - and let me remind you again, they own the FM radio networks - that points to a bigger issue. - www.allaccess.com
