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 Laid Bare: January 2014 Edition Released

Happy New Year to all our loyal readers. We really do hope that 2014 will bring you happiness, success and good health.

We have just released the newest version of our popular free ebook TV Licensing Laid Bare.

Our noble colleague TJoK, TV Licensing's most favourite kayaking and barbel enthusiast in the whole wide world, has kindly made a few remarks about the book on video:

The January 2014 edition includes some of TV Licensing's latest bloopers, including the fact that they've lost the personal data of almost 8,000 customers over the last 5 years. Somehow that statistic didn't make it quite as far as a TV Licensing press release!

The book begins by identifying the key players in the TV licence system. The emphasis then shifts towards the legal basis of the fee, and clearly explains the circumstances in which a TV licence is required. After a short analysis of how the licence fee is spent the book gives detailed information about how the TV licence is enforced. The book concludes with practical words of advice for the thousands of legally-licence-free people regularly harassed by TV Licensing's correspondence and employees.

The latest version of TV Licensing Laid Bare can be downloaded free with our compliments from this page.

Please share it with anyone else seeking advice about how to deal with TV Licensing. For the latest advice please "like" us on Farcebook or "follow" us on Twatter.

I know this is an old entry but I had a quick peek at the ebook you have posted on Google Docs and have noticed something that probably should have been added. In the page where you talk about the "key players", I think you should really consider adding BBC Worldwide. Reason being, is that you could then explain what happens to the programmes that we, the licence fee payers, pay for and how the BBC goes on to make more money out of it. Just an observation. ;) Keep up the great work on the blog.
