  1. Before I begin I feel I should say that I am a bit surprised that there is no separate section for TV License issues. That said, I don't have a television and I haven't had one for about eight years. I realise that probably makes me look quite peculiar to most people but I used to watch about an hour a week on a Friday night and then realised how much that was costing me per hour and decided that it wasn't worth it - something like £2.00 per hour, if I remember correctly, and asked my then landlord to take it away. He refused and I put the television in my wardrobe and wrot

    TV License

    I have read quite a lot on the internet about what constitutes to me requiring a TV license, but it is really vague and not clear. I have recently (2 months ago) moved to a new accommodation (rented). As soon as I moved in; within 15 days I started receiving letters from TVLA about the license fee. The letters are not addressed to me but to "The Present Occupier". I have received 3 so far and I have ignored them till now. I have a telly, but no aerial connection. I sometimes use it to play XBOX. Neither do I subscribe to any service nor do I plan to. I am planning to get rid of the
  3. Hi im looking for any advice anyone can offer regarding a summons I have received. I have just received a court summons for not having a tv license. The summons are not addressed to myself as it appears that they have spoken with a friend who was staying with me at the time. I am assuming that he did not let them in and they have claimed that they tested ch4, however I do not watch live tv as my property does not have an an external aerial or even an indoor one. I do not have a digital service or broadband connection and only use my xbox for games and dvds. Where do I stand? Man
  4. Hi Guys, In July 2010 I was moving out of my old property due to illness (Skin Cancer surgery etc) and moving back to my parents to recoup orate. Anyway on Saturday while I was uploading the car full of my personal stuff I was visited by one of the TV Licensing "salesmen" who asked if I had a license. I pointed out o him that there is no TV in the property and that I was selling the house, hence the two For Sale signs he was looking at, my front door was wide open so I said to him that he could go in and have a look for a TV as I knew there wasnt one in there The guy declined as
  5. Please help, i have today recieved a summons for not having a tv license. it is true i do not have 1 at the moment but i also have a cut aerial from my roof to the front of the house so cannot use freeview boxes. i have no virgin or sky subscription (untill my installation date 03/10/10). included in the summons is a "witness statement" from the visiting officer. he proceeds to state i gave him my name and told him i was using a colour tv to recieve live broadcasts, as i dont have the facility to do this i certainly would not say i had. now i dont know what to do about it. obviously he noted i
  6. Hi, I have been sent a new TV License for the period August 31 2010 until August 31 2011 to be paid by direct debit. The thing is, i am moving out of my flat in early september to move back in with my parents until i move into a new flat hopefully around december. i phoned tv licensing today to inform them of this and they said that they would transfer my license to the new flat. i objected because this would mean i would be paying whilst not actually needing a license and when i did move in to my new flat the license would run for less than 12 months. this doesnt seem fair, i know its on
