TV licenses are unavoidable but as a way to save money it is best to really ask yourself if u truly need one

If you want to watch TV it is inevitable that you have to pay for a TV license. TV licenses are legal requirement in the UK for anyone who uses equipment that can receive a live television signal including TV’s, digital boxes, video recorders, PCs, laptops, smartphones and tablets. The full price of a TV license is £145.50 – a large amount if you do not watch a lot of television. The high price to pay for watching television may be the reason why some choose to ignore the law and refuse to pay. Ian Fannon, TV licensing spokesperson said, ‘It’s not fair on the vast majority of people who pay their license fee for some people to watch TV without paying. We try to give people every chance to get on the right side of the law, but ultimately if they fail to pay, we will take action. We take TV license evasion very seriously, and any householder or businesses caught watching TV without a license can face prosecution.’

Cost.co.uk is dedicated to providing the best deals and money saving tips to consumers, even though television licences cannot be reduced there are ways to try and save some cash. It is best to ask if your household actually requires a TV license – if the people in your household mostly watch DVDs then why not restrain from having a TV license. It is also possible to reduce your bill by purchasing a black and white license which is significantly cheaper. Furthermore discounts are offered to people aged over 75, if you are blind or if you live in a residential home.

A spokesperson from Cost.co.uk added, ‘TV licenses are unavoidable but as a way to save money it is best to really ask yourself if u truly need one.’
