TV Licence Information

You need to be covered by a TV Licence to watch or record live TV programmes  on any channel, or download or watch BBC programmes on iPlayer.

This could be on any device, including a TV, desktop computer, laptop, mobile phone, tablet, games console, digital box or DVD/VHS recorder. If you do any of the above without a valid licence, you risk prosecution and a maximum penalty of up to £1,000, plus any legal costs and/or compensation you may be ordered to pay. You will also still have to buy a TV Licence if you need one.
To find out more, go to tvlicensing.co.uk/info

How can I buy a TV Licence?
There are lots of different ways to buy a TV Licence . Whether that’s through weekly cash payments, using your nearest PayPoint outlet, spreading the cost with monthly, quarterly or yearly direct debit, credit/debit card or by post – just choose the one that suits you best.
For more information on the ways to pay, go to tvlicensing.co.uk/payinfo

Could I get a concession?
Are you, or is someone you live with:
·         75 years old or older? You are eligible to apply for a free Over 75 TV Licence . Call 0300 790 6112 with your National Insurance number to hand or visit tvlicensing.co.uk/over75info
·         Blind and can provide the appropriate evidence? You are eligible to apply for a 50% blind concession on your TV Licence . If you are partially sighted (sight impaired) you are not eligible. To find out more, go to tvlicensing.co.uk/blind  

What if I don’t need a licence?
If you don’t need a TV Licence , we would ask you to let TV Licensing know so that they can update their details. They won’t then send you any letters for approximately two years.
