It’s not a requirement at the moment, it’s only a recommendation.
Nope, it’s designed for property protection, not data protection - inert systems are used because they are safe to use in these cases, better than a conventional sprinkler system. It’s the best system for the job as it puts the least risk on data loss.
Ahhh apologies hahaha
(Do you think I have time to argue with someone on here)
BBC don’t offer subtitles on Apple TV by default. Would you also consider that an equality/discrimination issue? I just don’t know if it’s something I should/could raise as I am affected (to an extent)
I have two different answers; morally, it is indeed discriminatory. Legally, I think because there are other ways of accessing the iPlayer, the BBC are not legally discriminating against people.
Not the iPlayer, but at one time there was a streaming app - either the ITV Player or All 4 - where if I used it with an Amazon Fire stick, no subtitles. But I could use it via computer. I complained, but otherwise just got on with things
As I don’t have Apple TV I did a Google and found someone had done a Freedom of Information request to the BBC about it:
In theory, if I had Apple TV and I wanted to watch the BBC iPlayer… I would use my television’s native version of the iPlayer instead of the Apple TV one.
tl;dr, this differs from the Channel 4 situation as there are alternatives for making the iPlayer work, whereas with the Channel 4 situation, they are legally supposed to subtitle their broadcast TV programmes, and there’s no alternative to All 4 not working.
Just a lack of fail safe I’d imagine, like you said BBC switched to another location where its a duplicate service and they reason they have this option is because they’re governed under a royal charter. So say they had to make an announcement for the death of the queen and a location goes down they can instantly switch to another location and stay live. I doubt the other independent broadcasters have this option or resources to implement it, they’re not governed the same as the BBC are.
