This licence lets you use and install TV receiving equipment at the licensed place. You are covered to:
This can be on any device, including TVs, desktop computers, laptops, mobile phones, tablets, games consoles, digital boxes, DVD, Blu-ray and VHS recorders, or anything else.
This licence does not cover areas occupied solely by tenants, lodgers or paying guests. The licence might also not cover areas that are self-contained, areas covered by separate legal arrangements or areas of business premises used for a different purpose. Please contact us to find out more.
We can cancel or change your licence. If we cancel it, we will let you know. If we change the licence conditions, we will publish a general notice on the BBC website and, if we consider it appropriate, in other national media. Our Officers may visit to check our records and inspect your TV receiving equipment. You don’t have to let them in. Your TV receiving equipment must not cause unreasonable interference to radio or TV reception.
Even if you have a black and white TV, you need a colour licence to record any live TV or download BBC programmes on BBC iPlayer. Please contact us to find out more.
