How do I get a TV licence?
When you move into your new home, you will need to pay a TV licence fee if you watch or record TV as it’s being broadcast. This also includes the use of devices such as a computer, laptop, mobile phone or a DVD/video recorder.
Watching TV without a valid licence can lead to a prosecution, a court appearance and a fine of up to £1,000 (not including legal costs). It costs £154.50 for a colour television licence and £52 for a black and white TV licence. Over 75s are entitled to a free TV licence (the government funded, free over 75 TV Licence scheme is being replaced on 1 June 2020 – click here for more information).
