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.

Phoney TVL "Official" Targets Vulnerable

The Sheffield Star reports that a bogus TV Licensing "official" is prowling the streets of the city.

The male fraudster cold calls on the elderly and infirm demanding to see their television licence. He has successfully gained access to several properties, although the paper fails to mention if anything was stolen.

We recommend that you are always suspicious of anyone claiming to be from TV Licensing. Even if they are the genuine article it's almost certain they'll try and fleece or intimidate you.

Simply say nothing and close the door on them.
