The law is changing. From 1 September 2016 you'll need a TV Licence to watch or download BBC programmes on demand, including catch up TV, on BBC iPlayer. Find out more
You only need one TV Licence for your home no matter how many TVs you have. The licence is for the place, not the TV.
If you have any of this equipment in your home to watch or record TV programmes you need a TV Licence.
We may send a TV Licensing officer to your home to check that what you have told us is true.
You must be covered by a valid TV Licence if you use TV receiving equipment to watch or record television programmes as they’re being shown on TV. If you do not get a TV Licence when you should have one you are breaking the law. This means you could be prosecuted and fined up to £1,000.
