The law states that you need to be covered by a TV Licence if you watch or record television programmes, on any device, as they're being shown on TV. This includes TVs, computers, mobile phones, games consoles, digital boxes and Blu-ray/DVD/VHS recorders.
You don't need a licence if you don't use any of these devices to watch or record television programmes as they're being shown on TV - for example, if you use your TV only to watch DVDs or play video games, or you only watch ‘catch up’ services like BBC iPlayer or 4oD.

TO THOSE THAT PAY THE FEE.

THANK YOU !!!!!!!

I don't - so thanks for paying for me.

I can't live without BBC iPlayer!

I only use my TV catch Up and Playing 360. So I thought it was worth passing on.

In all cases, we may need a couple of minutes of your time
As it is our duty to ensure that everyone in the UK who needs a licence has one, we may visit your address to check that no licence is required. It's unfortunately necessary to do this, as when we make contact on these visits, almost one in five people are found to need a TV Licence. Please be assured that this is a routine visit, and will take no more than a few minutes. If we find during the visit that you do in fact need a licence, you'll need to pay the full licence fee, and you could risk prosecution and a fine of up to £1,000.
We do not watch live tv so do not pay for a licence. But while at work the tv licencing guy came around threatening my other half and she paid him on the spot. Criminals.
At last... Another tv license thread!
Thought all that was pretty obvious really.
I actually don't have a tv but an LED projector I would be very hard to catch as I must have curtains closed to watch. Unfortunately my wife is a huge chicken: -)

TVCatchup is a 'as live' service so requires a TV license.
@Gavin Lewis he probably meant catch up TV I.e 4od and iPlayer as long as they are not live ofcourse

You try too hard to act childish.

You need to try and find a middle ground.

Editing quotes to manipulate the context of posts shows the inner workings of your sinister nature.

Its amusing so do continue, but after the laughter dissipates, pity comes into play (srs)
It will be abolished in the next few years, then all of these threads will be people moaning about adverts on the BBC.

Haven't had a TV license for years. If I need BBC programming - iPlayer.

Why pay for a TV License -only to be faced with hours and hours of adverts!

Yes Guv. Read carefully.

The BBC is one set of channels and this is the one you pay for. All the others show adverts. which make up the majority.

But I appreciate you falling into obvious attacks like that..

I read carefully and answered carefully.

If you'd said you watch ITVplayer, you may have had a reason to mention adverts. But you chose the one channel that doesn't making it highly amusing.

sigh..............


Guv... You pay the TV licence to watch live TV regardless of whether or not you watch BBC cannels. The majority of channels show adverts. The reference to the BBC was because that is what the TV license fee is funding.

Its really quite simple, not sure what part of it guv doesnt understand.

I'll see if I can simplify it further for him.

If you watch ANY tv channel as it is being broadcasted/aired you are liable to pay the TV License (does not have to be BBC).

Yes the tv license fee goes to the BBC, regardless of whether you watch BBC or any other of the hundreds of channels.

Many may have the opinion (such as ewwaxo) that watching live tv broadcasts (on every other channel) is enduring given that they show adverts and therefore may opt not to watch live broadcasts or the BBC.

Im of the opinion he was just nit picking because the other alternative is that he is rather quite simple.

All the on-demand facilities provide all the necessary viewing options. Unless you watch Live Sports, having a TV License is really unnecessary, just as the OP has stated.

In fact having Lovefilm + Netflix for a year is the equivalent of the TV License. On -demand no adverts.

Nothing on US Netflix then? Oh Well.

BTW. Im fully aware what the TV licence is for and who gets the money. I happily pay it too as they provide an excellent service. Especially their documentaries that often makes members here very frothy. X)

Right back to US Netflix this is boring.

I would rather have adverts on BBC rather than pay the licence, it's easier to skip commercials than to find the money to pay.
