Just leave the tv on?

Would this make an attractive disco light?

it's already in stock I saw it at the weekend

Not a bad idea since LED lights are extremely cheap to run and have a very long life compared to CFL or your average bulbs.

Not sure how this one works, but similar products are available for $40+. Seems like a good deal to me.

Burglars be **** when they break in anyway and realise it's not a tv

It's probably more interesting than what is actually on TV and doesn't need a licence!

why are you looking for them in dollars? and on what is apparently a very expensive website?

they can be had from £7.74 on eBay, different designs but all do the same thing

They will be happy enough when they leave with your tv and your tv simulator

I was reading it as a transvestite stimulator at first, and was wondering what the hell it could be!

Be careful, if the BBC have their way they'll be insisting you have a license for this soon.

Why not just not live in Nottingham?

Ingenious.

Bought one a few weeks ago, pretty decent bit of kit.

Simulated TV license inspector to go with it

yes, when you take the tv with you when you go on holiday

Got one of these, and I am quite happy with it. I was skeptical but it actually does look like a TV is on from outside, although I do leave a radio on too. It's a deterrent for some I suppose. CCTV in and around your house is a better deterrent, make sure your cctv stickers are visible though. Oh and get some smart water from your local police HQ, its cheaper than you might think, and don't forget to put those stickers in your windows too.

I'm happy with my cardboard cut out man on a train set to deter the burglars!

It simulates the Ant n Dec show.

Voting hot as seems a good price for the device, but would probably consider using the money for LED bulbs on a timer and batteries/power for the radio.

Enforced subrcription to state sponsored tv is against human rights. Nobody has to have a tv license, they choose to get one because they are brainwashed into thinking they must. The fear of getting "caught" is greater than the saving for many. When the salesman from the paedophilic organisation come knocking you simply tell them you dont require one......

Ewanyengi you have 4 replies to your comment. Lol
People duped into paying it have to justify it.... So lets hear it

Got one for a friend who has agoraphobia, wasn't appreciated really...........then he asked me to return it for him.

Why not record the wife in throes of eectasy and just play that back on a loop?

great for keeping the bailiffs confused

I saw this on Home Alone. It only works for the first night, you need booby traps for the second one.

LMAO another un needed item in the world. sorry but cold. rather give the money to an homeless person or charity than on this

I found out about this sort of device a while ago. This is the device I was referring to - amazon.com/gp/…-20

As I previously stated, the one Aldi is selling might be useless.

Cold. 32" doesn't really cut it in this day and age.

Does anyone know if they do a 50" HD version?

Cold. Not 1080p. Although 799p isn't bad.

Just hope you've not been burgled. I have and the small price for this item gives some feeling of doing something to stop it happening again.

TVL GOON BAIT !

I hope that people who buy these realise that for a fake TV, you need a fake TV license and for a very small fee, I will make one for you.

Got on and enjoy watching it but the audio doesn't work on mine and I end up watching the same show repeatedly, anyone else have the same issue?

Does this mean I'll need to get another TV licence to operate it?

Won't it make burglars at night think "he's got a TV, we'll wait til he goes off to work in morning"?

Is there a simulator for the simulator?

Reason's why your comment is invalid:
1) Pretty much everyone has a TV these days; this would be the minimum a burglar would perhaps expect in a 'target'.
2) Which leads on to the next point, they're not as expensive anymore; jewellery etc would be the more ideal target
3) I've never had a crack at the burglary business but I would suspect the early hours at dark is the optimum time to break into a house, as opposed to your suggestion of post-sunrise 7am when most people would be making their way to work.
4) This decoy would simulate a TV to scare off most burglars with the perception of people awake and present in the house/downstairs, unless, they are ready for the promotion of burglary or even armed-burglary.
