Do you need a TV License for a built in free-view TV even if you're not watching/recording live TV?

Posted 31st Oct 2014

I've recently moved into shared accomodation and I'm planning to bring my TV down with built-in freeview, however, my housemates have mentioned that if the TV can received live TV then the enforcers can fine me or I would have to cough up the TV License.

My other housemates are not contributing as they are not watching live TV, but I strongly feel that if the TV is now being watched for LIVE tv then I do not have to pay for the TV License.

I'm only using the TV for pre-recorded programmes.
