TV Licensing...

Noticed this earlier today,
tvlicensing.biz/

an interesting site.

Looks interesting to say the least

Personally I cant stand TV Licensing, a bunch of scaremongerers and thugs if you ask me.

Any Random Thoughts?

just signed the petition



me too..

may i just say that tv licensing rates are a complete disgrace and they should be cut because the bbc do not show they ammount of quality programs that they should, especially not for the money that their charging us!!!!!!!

Signed sealed transmitted.

I think all telly viewing prices are much too expensive, from satellite or cable or terrestrial. There are always "add ons" no matter what package you have.

The obvious most annoying one being for live sporting events. Some sport I just HAVE to watch :roll: like the rugby this afternoon + now

Its an outrageous con, as it only pays for the BBC channels, yet if you only watch ITV or satellite they still expect you to pay up.


They should scrap the fee and make the BBC channels pay per view, instead of charging us for a service that we dont use!

I just signed too.

It's a ridiculous amount of money for rubbish. I refuse to pay, so have NOT got a TV, and am perfectly happy about it.

Sorry to be the lone voice here but the BBC is worth every penny it gets. I'd pay the licence fee for Radio 4 alone. You're just playing into the hands of Murdoch who is charging you £500 + per year for watching 200 channels of imports, repeats and utter, utter drivel.
I don't watch commercial TV but I still have to pay the advertising levy that companies add to the price of their goods. I wish I could opt out of that.

I dont give a shit about the fee, its the complete lack of respect for the law, the EU (yup, thats right they cant fine you under the EU are in court over this atm) and its customers.

Thankfulyl, except for TV Licensing this is a country that believes in Innocent until proven guilty and not the other way round

Point taken.
I hate strong arm tactics as much as anyone.
Two seperate points in this post though and I was replying to the latter. One is about the enforcement, the other about the need to pay a licence fee at all. I won't be signing the petition though as my previous post still holds true (for me).
