You can already do that now you know. Just watch TV through your computer and don't use iPlayer. You don't need to pay tv license. You can subscribe to sky, Netflix or whatever you like. Just stay away from iPlayer and don't have a digital TV and you are fine.

I am more than happy to subscribe and watch programmes on my tv that I think are VFM. What I don’t like is having it forced on me. Now all those liberals out there should understand that and be lending their weight to dismantling what was once a great institution but is way past its sell by date. As I say, give the people a choice.

Not sure if that’s true, here’s the relevant but from the licensing site
A TV Licence covers you to watch or record live TV programmes on any channel, and to download or watch BBC programmes on iPlayer. This applies to any device and provider you use, including:
TV sets (including smart TVs)
DVD, Blu-ray and VHS recorders
Laptops and desktop computers
Tablets, mobile phones and other portable devices
Digital boxes or PVRs (such as Sky, Virgin Media or BT TV)
Games consoles
Media streaming devices (such as Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, Roku and Now TV)
Freeview, Freesat or YouView


It’s like the old argument of I only watch ITV, the licence is on the equipment to receive it rather than the channel you watch, after all BBC is carried on the sky platform as is iplayer

You don't need it if you don't watch live TV.

So the other poster has a choice to stop. But they'd rather moan.

I am not moaning, in this day and age I would rather be given a choice as I am with Sky. The true fact is that if we were given an option most people would opt out.

You have got an option. So opt out.

Not too sure most people would opt out SEFC. £3 per week seems pretty cheap for what the BBC offers. My wife would pay 3 times that just for strictly 😉

Well I watch tv so I don’t really have a choice. As far as I am concerned it is another tax for which I don’t receive a good service.

That’s fine Jobo, if people want to pay then that is their choice. My choice would be to kick it into the long grass. I would rather donate my £3 pw to charity.
