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.

New Magazine for "Axe the TV Tax" Campaign

The Freedom Association has just released the first edition of the TV Freedom magazine.

The magazine keeps readers up to date with the latest developments in the "Axe the TV Tax" campaign, which seeks to highlight the obsolescence of the current BBC funding model.

Our eye was instantly drawn to the stat porn on page 3 of the opening edition. According to those figures, the BBC has spent the equivalent of:
  • 66,000 TV licence fees on hotel bills.
  • 69,000 TV licence fees on golden goodbyes.
  • 689,000 TV licence fees on the abandoned Digital Media Initiative.
  • 6,800,000 TV licence fees on moving BBC News operations to Broadcasting House.
There has never been a better time to stop funding the BBC, but anyone doing so should make sure they cancel their TV licence in the correct manner.
