How would you like to pay for your TV Licence?

A standard colour TV Licence costs £145.50*. We understand everyone budgets differently, so we offer a number of methods to help you pay quickly and easily, in a way that suits you. Choose how you'd like to pay:

Weekly Monthly Quarterly Yearly

Yearly

Would you like to pay all in one go? Then you’ll find the easiest way is by annual Direct Debit because your TV Licence is automatically renewed for you every year. Or, if you prefer to use a card to pay each year, we accept most major debit and credit cards.

Quarterly

Would you prefer to spread the cost of your licence across four payments throughout the year? Then quarterly Direct Debit may suit you and your licence will be automatically renewed every year. Because you’re paying for your licence as you use it, each quarterly payment includes a £1.25 premium.

Your first payment is due now. Please pay this by debit/credit card. If you are unable to do this we will adjust your Direct Debit payments.

Monthly

Monthly Direct Debit is our most popular option, giving you the control of smaller monthly instalments with the convenience of automatic payment and renewal. You’ll usually pay for your first year’s TV Licence within the first six months, at around £24 a month. You’ll then pay for your next licence in twelve monthly instalments of just over £12.

Your first payment is due now. Please pay this by debit/credit card. If you are unable to do this we will adjust your Direct Debit payments.

Weekly

Because every year comes in weekly instalments, you can pay for your TV Licence the same way. Our payment card spreads the cost with small amounts – you pay for your first licence over 26 weeks, then you can move to fortnightly payments. You can pay online, at PayPoint outlets, by phone and by text message, so it’s very convenient, too.
