TV licence

November 16, 2014 at 11:28 AM

A licence is required to watch or record TV as it is being broadcast. This applies if you use a television, computer, laptop, mobile phone or DVD/video recorder. Watching TV without a licence is a criminal offence and can lead to a fine of up tp £1000.

A licence is not needed to watch catch-up services online. One TV licence covers all the equipment in a single home but if rooms are rented separately a licence is required for the TV equipment in each room. Students living in a hall of residence with a TV in their room also need their own licene.

TV Licensing Officers have no right of entry to your home without a search warrant.
