Why we're here:
This blog is to highlight the unjust persecution of legitimate non-TV users at the hands of TV Licensing. These people do not require a licence and are entitled to live without the unnecessary stress and inconvenience caused by TV Licensing's correspondence and employees.

If you use equipment to receive live broadcast TV programmes, or to watch or download on-demand programmes via the BBC iPlayer, then the law requires you to have a licence and we encourage you to buy one.

Live Online Streaming of BBC1 and BBC2

The BBC has just announced plans to live stream two of its channels over the web.

BBC1 and BBC2 programmes will be broadcast live via the web from Thursday, 27th November.

In theory anyone who watches the online broadcasts requires a TV licence, as the content is delivered in real-time. In practice there is no way of checking whether or not you're licenced to watch TV on your PC. The internet service providers aren't going to 'grass up' their clients to the TV licence police.

As always, we recommend you comply with the law by ensuring you're correctly licenced to use the new service. But no-one's going to know if you're not!
