What happens if I don't have a TV Licence?

Using a TV or any other device (for example, a VCR, set-top box, DVD recorder or PC) to watch or record television programmes as they are being shown on TV without a valid TV Licence is against the law and could lead to prosecution and a fine of up to £1,000 (this fine varies in Guernsey and Jersey), not to mention the embarrassment and hassle of a court appearance.

You can buy a TV Licence online.
