Disposing of Your Television
One way to avoid paying the TV licence fee if you don’t watch live TV or the BBC iPlayer is to get rid of your television. Even though it might seem drastic, some people discover they can satisfy their entertainment needs in other ways.
This could include turning on the radio, accessing streaming content on a smart TV, or using a laptop or mobile device to watch television. Remember, you don’t need a TV licence if you aren’t watching live TV or BBC programmes on iPlayer.
However, consider whether you will miss out on your preferred shows or services before removing your television. Also, remember that you still require a licence if you use another device to access the BBC iPlayer or watch live TV without a television.
