Millions of viewers are able to watch the BBC for as little as £4 a month- the only catch - you have to inhabit either Europe, Australia, or Canada.

An annual pass for hours of drama, comedy, and documentaries are available to those over-sea viewers for just a meagre £52, in comparison to the £145.50 for Brits.

Tory MP Conor Burns - a member of the media and sport select committee - told the Daily Mail that he is "very much in favour of the BBC commercialising content and using the revenue to create more innovative, good quality British-made productions.

"But it is an outrage that they are selling content to foreign nationals at a cheaper rate than to those in the UK who are obliged to pay the licence fee."

The BBC launched their internet-based Global iPlayer more than two years ago; where European subscribers pay €7.99 (£6.70) a month or €74.99 (£63) a year.

Australians annual cost is $AU89.99 (£52.50) whilst Canada can access all of this for only $CAD84.99 (£52) a year - a mere £4.33 a month.

These viewers can view iconic British comedies such as Blackadder and Fawlty Towers, as well as up to 2,000 hours of shows on demand - via their iPad or iPhone.

A BBC spokesman told the Daily Mail that "unlike the UK BBC iPlayer, the Global iPlayer is not a seven-day catch-up service, and it does not offer the same breadth or amount of content available to the UK licence fee payer."
