The TV licence and YOU!

#1
This is the official line from the TV licence people:

If you use or install television receiving equipment to receive or record television programme services you are required by law to have a valid TV Licence.

Plugs included I guess :wink:

But not for computer equipment, including laptops, unless they have been modified (i.e: have a TV tune card included). In fact, you can't purchase a new TV card from a computer shop unless you supply your name and address. If you purchase second hand, then just becareful when the detector van comes around. Without a TV card, your computer screen is classed as a VDU/moniter/TFT, and not a TV.

If you receive programme services, live via the internet, for example, BBC On-line [Newsnight is one such broadcast], then you need to buy a TV Licence.

If you receive programme services, live via the internet, broadcasted from outside the UK, then you do NOT need to buy a TV Licence.

If you are using the internet to browse archived programme services websites, then you do NOT need to buy a TV Licence.

Its all about interpretation :? . Be good chaps and chapettes and buy a TV licence or Put your TV in your mates room who has been good enough to buy a TV licence.

Im of too drink some mucky beer.

I think you need to go and get a fcuking life mate. Why the worry over whether or not your PC can get the BBC or TV over the internet or indeed through a TV tuning card ?? Lordy !! Are you a BBC revenue collector or a fcuking train spotter?!?

Has any one else decided to pak their bags and leave the UK, after termination of service to the colours?

I moved to Norway.

I ski at weekends.
Walk in the mountains in the summer
Get to look at 6ft tall, blonde haired, blue eyed women all day long.
Earn nearly 5 grand per annum more than my UK counterpart.

And pay 6 quid for a pint of Guiness.
and pay 36%income tax.
(add national insurance contributions and income tax together I dont think its far off. And if it is well I dont pay council tax either)
Sounds great. Why concern yourself with the BBC's licence to watch pish!? Ski, drink expensive beer, trap ubertotty, walk in the mountains.

You are in N.O.R.W.A.Y! :roll:

Lucky ba5tard.
