%VIRTUAL-SkimlinksPromo%BBC boss Tony Hall said he wants to extend the licence fee to cover people watching programmes on the iPlayer.

At the moment the £145.50 fee is payable by everyone in the UK who watches or records BBC programmes when they are shown - meaning the on-demand iPlayer is not included.
