Current service licence

The Trust reissued BBC service licences in April 2014 with an amended annual budget for the financial year 2014/15. The new budget reflects any approvals already given by the Trust including those within the Delivering Quality First strategy. The relevant licences also now reflect the Trust’s approval of a 30 day window for TV content on iPlayer.
