The law states that you need to be covered by a TV Licence if you watch or record television programmes, on any device, as they're being shown on TV. This includes TVs, computers, mobile phones, games consoles, digital boxes and Blu-ray/DVD/VHS recorders.
You don't need a licence if you don't use any of these devices to watch or record television programmes as they're being shown on TV - for example, if you use your TV only to watch DVDs or play video games, or you only watch ‘catch up’ services like BBC iPlayer or 4oD.
If you do hold a valid licence and you wish us to proceed with the cancellation of the licence and record that there is no television equipment in use at your address, please let us know.

Sorry for being a bit off topic.
OK, I'm from Canada. A TV License? I figure that's some sort of contract you have with the BBC? So that comes out to 12,12... Canadian that come to around 20$. per month. That's pretty good. Jeez...we are being gouged. I'm at around 55$ per month. And it's pretty basic.
In practice there are only two forms of evidence that TV Licensing can offer when requesting a search warrant:
That the legal occupant has admitted that they are using television receiving equipment without a licence.
That an Enforcement Officer has observed or heard television receiving equipment being used in an unlicensed property.
