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 Licence Fee to Increase


The BBC TV licence fee is set to increase.

A 12-month colour TV licence currently costs £147. This will increase to £150.50 from 1st April 2018. The cost of a monochrome (black & white) TV licence will increase from £49.50 to £50.50.

A TV licence is needed for any property where equipment is installed or used to receive TV programmes at the same time as they are broadcast to other members of the general public. Additionally, from 1st September 2016, a TV licence is required for any property where equipment is installed or used to watch or download BBC on-demand programmes (e.g. via the BBC iPlayer).

Anyone buying a new or renewing an existing TV licence before 1st April will be charged the current annual fee.

We remind readers that there are many legally-licence-free alternatives to buying a TV licence. A licence is not required to watch videos on a streaming site like YouTube, nor is one required to watch programmes using a non-BBC on-demand service like ITV Hub, All4, My5, Netflix or Amazon Prime.

There has never been a better time to cancel your TV licence and starve a BBC deviant.

DILLIGAF the only time I paid the Paedo tax was when I was conned into BT Vision but that ended in 2016 when I dumped BT as the total package was over £73 a month. Then there was the Paedo tax on top £12.12, I would rather watch Netflix than the corrupt BBC
