The law in respect of this was changed in June this year. You simply cannot do what you want to do unless you have the appropriate licence from the broadcaster.

If there was an easy way to get round this, everyone would do it. I’m sorry, I know it’s the not the answer you wanted.

Please rate the service positive. It is an important part of the process by which experts get paid. It does not cost you anything but helps us greatly.

Best wishes.
