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.

Watchdog Reminder

I was browsing a the Digital Spy forums when I came across a TV Licensing thread about how people should write the BBC's Watchdog programme to complain.

That advice probably won't get much of a take up on Digital Spy, because it is populated by a very large proportion of BBC luvvies so blinkered by their appreciation of the Corporation that they can't accept any criticism about the way it operates.

A few months ago I also suggested people write the BBC's Watchdog programme to complain about the heavy handed and dishonest tactics TV Licensing employ in the name of licence fee enforcement.

Given the recent interest on Digital Spy it seems an apt time to remind everyone about that earlier post. It includes a template letter for people to send to Watchdog.

If you're a legitimate non-TV user who faces constant harassment by TV Licensing then express your displeasure directly to the BBC by downloading and sending our letter. In common with Points of View the Watchdog programme is a bit of a pro-BBC joke, but if enough people write in it will increase their awareness of just how unpopular TV Licensing is.

As a licence payer i am appalled at the amount of licence payers money has been used to pay off top executives to leave the bbc,i already believe that the bbc licence fee is unjustified poor value for money and should be looked at in respect of what it offers, if it has to charged then it should be changed to pay per view.

Have read the article about writing to Watchdog to complain about the harassment from TVL and the unscrupulous ways they try to extort money from us I thought I should post this little titbit I found on YouTube from one of the presenters of Watchdog, none other than Matt Allright, an employee of the BBC. Matt goes on to tell us how the British Board of Corruption(BBC) are operating illegally and how low they will stoop to extort money from an unsuspecting public.Sit back and enjoy.
