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.

TV Licensing Operations Shortlist

As many readers will know Capita Business Services Ltd. hold the contract to perform most of TV Licensing's dirty work.

To the untrained eye the BBC maintains a healthy distance from its ethically devoid TV Licensing arm. It wouldn't do for the nation's favourite broadcaster to send out threatograms and doorstep snoopers under their own name, hence the use of the TV Licensing trademark to maintain a shroud of mystique.

Make no mistake that TV Licensing's dubious tactics are sanctioned at the highest level of the BBC, who are well aware of the harassment and intimidation performed in the name of licence fee enforcement. Parliament has told them as much.

Capita's 12-year contract comes to an end in 2012.

The BBC has just announced that four companies have been shortlisted for the award of the new TV Licensing operations contract next year.

And the losers are: Accenture, Cap Gemini, Capita and IBM.
