Typically, one TV Licence will allow use of TV equipment at the licensed address, by you, your family or any person working or visiting there.
You don’t need a TV Licence if you’re a lodger and have a relationship with the homeowner – for example, a family member, common law partner, a nanny, au pair or housekeeper.
You’re covered by the homeowner’s TV Licence if they have one, but only if you live in the same building. If you live in self-contained accommodation, such as a separate flat or annex, you need your own separate licence.
