Just transfered from the old "go to the post office, pay your annual tv license" to setting it up online. Decided pay monthly is perfect, as I don't want to pay all at once as I'll only be in my next house 10 months. So, take £135 (a rip off) and divide through by 12... or not, because their definition of pay monthly is: The full cost of your TV Licence (currently 5 Payments of £27.10 ) will be collected on a monthly basis by Direct Debit. That, to me anyway, is not a monthly collection. Why is everything run by imbiciles?
