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.

If you've just arrived here from a search engine, then you might find our Quick Guide helpful.

Free Book


We have written a book to help dispel a lot of the myths surrounding the TV licence.

The latest version (Sept 2016) of TV Licensing Laid Bare can be downloaded here (Google Docs version).

Please share it with anyone else seeking advice about how to deal with TV Licensing.
