No, as you only need a licence if you are watching live TV. iplayer is repeats of programmes that have already been shown.
If you are watching 'catch-up' programmes no TV licence.
However, there may be an issue of 'Performing Rights Licence' depending on business and who is likely to view.
Jacks correct.

You would need a premises PRS licence to cover you for the music contained in programs and their themes.
>>> iplayer is repeats of programmes that have already been shown.

No its not.

You can watch "live" TV as well on the iPlayer
I was unaware of that VHG.
