Clearance bargain

The BBC has confirmed that the BBC Store archive download and streaming service will cease operating on 1st November.

It was all there in the Terms And Conditions...

"We cannot guarantee that you will be able to stream or re-download Content that’s in your BBC Store account forever. Where our right to make content available has expired, you will no longer be able to stream or download that content from your BBC Store account. We’ll try not to take down expired content without first notifying you that it is due to expire, so that you have the opportunity to download and playback the content through the Store Downloader."

The BBC is being more generous than that: it can apparently afford to refund customers on purchases made (were there that few ?), or offer them Amazon vouchers to the value of 10% more than they've spent.
