Unfortunately TV licenses are not provided and so you will need to provide your own. A colour TV Licence costs £145.50 a year. You can pay in one go, or spread the cost weekly, monthly, quarterly or yearly – whatever’s best for you.
Please note there is a change in the law from 01st September 2016 meaning it is important to check if you need a TV licence.
If you watch or record any live TV on any channel – or if you download or watch BBC programmes on demand (including catch up TV) on BBC iPlayer – in your room, you need to be covered by a TV Licence. This applies whether you use a TV (including a smart TV), laptop, tablet, mobile phone, games console, digital box, DVD/VHS recorder or anything else.
