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: No Licence Needed? No Point Wasting Your Breath!


People who do not legally require a TV licence are under no legal obligation at all to TV Licensing.

They do not need to respond to TV Licensing's caustic missives, answer the door to TV Licensing's scummy, unwashed operatives or confirm their personal circumstances in an effort to satisfy TV Licensing's sordid, legally-baseless suspicions.

Time and time again TV Licensing has shown that it cannot be trusted with people's personal information. Nobody should be putting their confidential personal data at risk by volunteering it to TV Licensing when there is no legal requirement to do so.

The No Licence Needed (NLN) declaration process is a case in point. Anyone who does not legally need a TV licence is under no obligation to confirm their circumstances to TV Licensing, but many do in the mistaken belief it will stop TV Licensing threatograms and doorstep enquiries.

In many cases, as the images below serve to demonstrate, this is not the case. TV Licensing is more than happy to continue its targeted harassment of the occupiers of properties who have declared NLN.


By declaring NLN, the occupier is confirming that their property is occupied, therefore active and worthy of closer scrutiny, and that they are amenable to further correspondence and dialogue with TV Licensing.

We really cannot emphasise strongly enough that no-one should be wasting their time declaring NLN to TV Licensing, thereby furnishing it with information to which it has no legal entitlement.

Would you declare to Asda that you only did your shopping at Tesco? Or that you didn't do any shopping at all? Of course Asda, unlike TV Licensing, would not have the arrogance of asking people to make such a declaration in the first place!

If you're a newbie to the sinister and deceitful tactics employed by TV Licensing, please have a read of our Quick Guide page.

In short, we recommend anyone who doesn't legally require a TV licence ignores TV Licensing entirely.
