A club or community group needs to be covered by a valid TV Licence to watch or record TV programmes as they're being shown on TV, or to download or watch any BBC programmes on iPlayer – live, catch up or on demand. This includes the use of devices such as a TV, desktop computer, laptop, mobile phone, tablet, games console, digital box or Blu-ray/DVD/VHS recorder.
Usually you only need one TV Licence to cover a club or community group. However, in some cases certain areas may need a separate TV Licence. Please check below to ensure you’re correctly licensed.
It costs £145.50 for colour and £49.00 for a black and white TV Licence. For further information, download our guide:
