I'm calling BS on this, or how are they supposed to do this (on a technical level)?: Licence fee detector vans to check on web viewers who watch BBC shows without a licence http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3726397/Licence-fee-detector-vans-check-web-viewers-watch-BBC-shows-without-licence.html Detector vans will spy on families who watch BBC shows online without a licence, it was reported last night. The broadcaster will deploy a new generation of ‘Wi-Fi detection vans’ from next month. The BBC would not disclose how the new technology works. The report states that it has ruled out combing its own records of computers that have logged on to the iPlayer website to catch fee-dodgers. A BBC spokesman said last night: ‘We’ve caught people watching on a range of devices but don’t give details of detection as we would not want to reveal information helpful to evaders.’
