Armed Forces - Am I covered by the base's TV Licence?

Your base’s TV Licence will only cover working and communal areas such as the:

  • cookhouse and guardroom;
  • classrooms and communal areas in junior ranks accommodation blocks.

You’ll need a TV Licence to:

  • watch or record programmes as they’re being shown on TV or live on an online TV service
  • download or watch BBC programmes on iPlayer – live, catch up or on demand.

This applies to any provider you use and any device, including a TV, desktop computer, laptop, mobile phone, tablet, games console, digital box or Blu-ray/DVD/VHS recorder.
