do not pay for your TV licence anymore.....I've just got out of mine because I never watch live TV. I have no arials coming in house and only watch I player after its been shown on live tv. This also includes still listening to radio one and any apps as long as I'm not streaming weather forecast. I've been on phone to license and asked lots of questions.
As long as ive got no recording devices I can hook my laptop up to telly and watch any BBC and other channel programmes so long as it's already been aired.
My main question is......if we all got together and did this could we abolish the TV licence
or would "the powers that be" close the loop?!?!
I'm going give this free a go so long as I can milk it any how I can use smart tv or hook laptop up to tv.

They wold just add it via some other form of tax in the end I think. Here in Canada we pay for the CBC through general federal taxes, but its' not a separate charge.

Dont.

# it.

I should not have to pay for something I dont use.



Maybe optional subscription? Opt in to pay a fee to access BBC content?

I believe the best way to get rid of the bastards is simply to say "I hereby remove you right of access to the property". Don't provide them with any other details and if they refuse to leave phone the Police and they will do it for you.

Extortion is a crime even when its corporations such as the BBC perpetrating the act.

...Smart TV


Well you should prepare yourself for a fine.

If your laptop has a HDD it is classed as a recording device.

If your Smart TV had HDD (internal or usb) it is classed as a recording device.

Begs the question. Why fund the BBC?

I gave up watching TV 8 months ago, its only used for my sons computer or for my daughters baby programs.

TV license is the biggest scam going. I remember years ago a TV license guy told me if I didn't open the door he would call the police, I told him to go ahead the police will probably arrest you for wasting their time.

These people have no legal right to enter your home. Tell them to fack off.

According to the TV license letters I get every now and then they have been conducting an investigation into my use or lack of use of a TV, its funny because after a 5 year investigation the silly melts are no closer to knowing if I have a TV or not, its hilarious.

Doesn't matter, there's no way of enforcing it. I've removed common law access to my property to the BBC and they are aware of it. I've never had to give them my name and they can't get a warrant to search my property so how exactly are they going to take me to court when they don't know who I am or whether I watch live TV.
The BBC is DEAD...Buried. Consider this mercy.

Personally I have never agreed with the TV license thing, its just another way for the government to fleece more money out of people.

What is a "TV licence"? I know in the states that we register for different companies like Comcast and Direct TV in order to get cable, or satellite, to watch TV.

Its what it says on the tin, a licencing scheme you pay to watch and receive TV signals. The legality however is dubious at best.

It's a yearly charge of £145.50 that is paid by all people that watch live to air TV in the UK. It is used to fund the BBC and has no adverts and has at times some quality programming but in recent years not so much.

I'm not saying I agree with it. I absolutely don't.

I think it's an outdated system for todays way of life.

But just because I don't agree with it doesn't mean I won't get fined if I don't pay it.
