Snap! And now when you buy a TV you must buy a TV licence with it.
Really? I thought they just notified the licencing people about you...
I bought a new tv a month or so back and nobody asked for anything like that.
You dont, but you fill in details when you purchase a TV and these are sent on to the licencing people.
ID?! I'd tell them to get lost - it's not the law to provide ID when buying a telly,
Yes it is, but you could always pay with cash and give the address of a friend with a TV licence.
Personally I pay my £150 a year, Id rather not break the law - its just one less pair of shoes!
licence payers as they know that the licence will cease to exist for much longer.
Dont count on it, its a nice little money earner they're not about to get rid of any time soon, TV advertising isnt as lucrative as it used to be since the internet became so popular.
