Watching Tv Without A Tv Licence


BCram

Recommended Posts

I have just paid my TV licence and have noticed that there is a discussion in the media about the future of the BBC operating under a universal licence fee. I am not computer savvy and I wonder what are the options for watching television programmes without having to buy a TV licence.

In particular I am concerned that if the current way of operating is changed the BBC will still have to be paid for. watching online seems to be the way things are going. what costs are incurred by those Dee's who use this system? do they think that there will be any significant change in these costs if the BBC licence fee is scrapped? we have some American Dee's and I wonder how they pay for their TV. Even a modest broadband and TV package from Virgin costs about £45 per month. That's £540 per year compared with a BBC licence of £145.50 It includes BBC channels but will it if we don't fund BBC via the current system? :(

Just don't pay it, I haven't paid mine for years since I moved house.

Don't let the the TV Licence staff in your property EVER !How to deal with TV Licence goons

All fine and well if you are only receiving transmissions through a free to air UHF aerial.

Not so if your an active subscriber to a cable or satellite service. Data Protection Act isn't impenetrable to the TV licensing authority and "reasonable belief" is provided when they gather that detail.

Was thinking more about BT Sports initially free football, now you need to pay. What happens if the BBC goes on a subscriber basis. Initially cheap, or the same as the current TV licence, then a couple of years down the line when they've got everyone signed up prices will rise. think the single price licence fee might be a good thing. i understood that there were some on here who watch online, and I wondered what costs they incurred.

I will never pay a license fee.

The BBC funded and covered up Pedophiles for years.

BBC are a running legalised extortion of which I am not prepared to go along with. Had two visits from them ,they have no rights whatsoever to enter your house so more of us should have the balls to stand up to them....F**k them I say!!!!

All taxation is legalised extortion. BBC pushing for a change to a levy on every house regardless if they watch TV or not.

Why don't you watch Sky, BBC, and BT through the mobile telephone app called Mobdro. It is an android based App which can be watched through your Television or a monitor Via a Chromecast Dongle  (£30.00 from PC World) It is Free!

 If I have my TV and plug in this chromecast dongle is that really all I need to do? Do I need to make sure that I can't receive TV signals from the BBC? I'm not interested in making a protest, all I'd like to know is how to watch TV without having to pay for a licence. It looks as though if you watch on "catch up" and not "live" you can do it. I was thinking that this seems such an obvious way round it that there must be some plan to stop people doing it.

The app only works through an android phone or notepad,     you will also need fast broadband or there will be buffering.  You can google Mobdro.

I'm pretty sure you can get the live channels on the iplayer too BCram. I've certainly done it on the iPad before. Not sure about the license obligations if you're watching online but it's certainly possible to watch live TV as well as catch up.
