Why do I get taken to bbc.com when I register?
Page updated: 27 September 2016
When you register for a BBC account, we take you to a page on bbc.com, which is the global version of the BBC website.
Doing it this way makes it easier for you to sign in to BBC services on both bbc.co.uk and bbc.com
It’s all part of the BBC, so it’s still safe and secure. You can find out more about your information and privacy here.
