How much is a TV Licence and do I need one for BBC iPlayer?
The main talking point on this week’s LBC show was about the latest changes to TV Licencing. Dean Dunham explained the new changes which affect those who watch BBC iPlayer and warns people of the consequences of being caught without one.
TV Licence changes
If you are watching BBC iPlayer without a TV Licence, then you need to purchase one because as of September 1st, 2016 you need to have one to watch or download BBC programmes on BBC iPlayer. This includes any live TV shows or streaming, catch up and also any on demand services you want to use. Furthermore, the law change states that you still need a TV Licence to watch or record programmes on any channel as they are being shown on TV or live on an online TV service.
