Morning Money: Maurice Smith on the changes to BBC iPlayer and the TV licence fee.
New TV licensing rules are making it illegal to use the BBC iPlayer app to watch the corporation's programmes without paying the licence fee. Up to now, only live content has been covered by the £145.50 annual licence, with online viewers having to confirm they have paid before they can watch a live feed of BBC channels. This policy is being extended to the catch-up service. Media Commentator Maurice Smith joined the show to discuss further.

Morning Money: Brexit caused headwinds for UK airlines - so why is Jet2 creating 1000 new jobs?
There are some new headwinds for UK airlines one way or another. Ryanair boss, Michael O’Leary, has said he expects Brexit to cost the no-frills airline 5 million passengers next year, as he predicted the UK would end up looking “pretty stupid”. Easyjet meanwhile has remained silent on market talk of a possible bid. But bucking the trend, holiday airline Jet2.com has announced plans to create almost 1000 new jobs: hiring in pilots, cabin crew, and engineers starting in September to work from eight regional airports. Is this a a savvy move or a mistake? Matt Cox has been scoping out the airline sector with John Grant, Partner at aviation data and analysis specialists MIDAS Aviation.

Morning Money: Why have Scottish wind farms been paid to shut down?
This month, Scottish wind farms have received a record £5.5 million to shut down. It’s after hurricane-force gusts produced more electricity than could be consumed. August 7th saw winds blowing as high as 115 miles an hour, while demand for power fell to record lows. But Renewable UK’s Deputy Chief Executive, Maf Smith, told Share Radio's James Brydges that wind farms turning off was actually the least expensive solution.
