How does the monthly Direct Debit scheme work?

You'll usually pay for your first year's licence within six months, in instalments of around £24.50 per month. Depending on when you join, there may be times when we have to spread the cost into four or five monthly instalments. This means the monthly amount will be slightly higher, but the total amount would be the same.

From then on, you'll pay for your next licences in 12 monthly instalments of around £12.25 - six before your licence is due to begin and six after.

Your TV Licence will automatically renew every year, as long as payments are kept up.
