Yes, well, that's clear enough. If I want to watch TV as it's being
broadcast or record TV from a broadcast, I need a TV licence. It's a
long time since I had a TV - been an avid Debian GNU/Linux user, but no
TV. Oh well. I shall now join the vast majority!


TVM for your help.

I think so. But I also believe that you can get round it by watching iPlayer
etc. over the internet. IANL of course!

Thanks. I've checked with the TV Licencing authority and it appears that
I have to have a licence. So here goes...

Unfortunately you can't. You still need a TV licence to watch via
iPlayer. It says so on the BBC web site.

It is true that you need a TV licence to watch programmes that are
currently being broadcast ("as the programmes are being broadcast,
simulcast or otherwise made available by the BBC on television").


However, programmes that were are not being broadcast at the time may be
watched, in the UK only, without a TV licence, for as long as they are
available on iplayer. The BBC would like to close this loophole.
