TV licence thread

You have answered your own question there. If you have a device that can receive live TV broadcasts then you have to have a licence by law. If you don't want to buy a licence then you don't have a device that can receive live TV  broadcasts.  Are you saying that people are forced to have devices that can receive live TV broadcasts? I don't get your stance on being "Forced" you need to explain it to me. 

I have many devices that can receive live television broadcasts but I am NOT required by law to purchase a TV licence simply for having these devices.

 

The law states quite clearly that "You only need a TV licence if you watch or record TV as it's being broadcast or use iPlayer".

 

I watch on demand streaming services, Netflix, You tube etc. on my devices that are capable of receiving live television broadcasts, but I do not watch live television broadcasts or BBC iPlayer on them. 

 

I do not have a TV licence. I do not need a TV licence.

Well, a right wing Tory government might try to pass such a law in order to remove a source of news that tries to be balanced rather than supports the press barons.

 

Have you heard of Rupert Murdoch btw 😎

Got an email yesterday saying "You've just days left to renew your TV Licence"  it is a fortnight before it is due, why do they say that when there is still 2 weeks before it is due. Oh and yes it is a genuine mail not the scam mails going around, it says the same every year.
