T.V licensing information

© Image Credit or Caption

You need a TV licence if you:

  • watch or record programmes as they’re being shown on TV or live on an online TV service, such as All4, Sky Go and YouTube, 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 one of your flatmates has a TV licence for their room, this will cover a TV in a communal area.

A TV licence costs £147.00 per year and you could be fined up to £1,000 or face prosecution if found not to have one.
