It's easy to legally not pay it.


Simply stop watching and/or recording live broadcasts.


Hey presto. No need to pay for a licence. :-D


I agree Bob, but that didn't seem to be what DW was suggesting ...... :???:

In my opinion if you do not watch or record LIVE TV then you do not need a licence.

I have a TV plus an ipad but DO NOT watch or record live TV and defy them, even invite them, to take me to court.


Frankly I am disappointed as I have not received my May or June visit which I am sure I enjoy far more than they do.

Where would the TVLA stand regarding the use of iplayer?


A TV Licence is only required for watching TV as, or almost as soon as it is transmitted.


I have posted a FoI request confirming this elsewhere on the forum.


I don't use iplayer, but if it can show a programme as it is transmitted, then a licence would be required for that, but to watch everything else would not require a licence.


God know's how they would ever know if someone was breaking the law and viewing a concurrent transmission, to throw the book at them.


It's also worth adding that TV detector vans have never been mentioned in any news article covering a prosecution for having no licence, and FoI requests about detectors are always declined under the "administration of justice" get out.
