MORE than 60,000 homes in Warrington will not receive an annual paper TV licence as long as they automatically renew and pay on time.

This is part of a UK-wide initiative by TV Licensing to deliver better value for the Licence Fee payer.

Paul Williams, a spokesman for TV Licensing, said: “By not issuing the annual paper licence to Direct Debit customers TV Licensing will have saved around £5m from the start of the initiative to Charter Renewal in 2016.

“Those customers won’t require a paper licence until 2016 as we know their property is correctly licensed and their payment plans won’t change until then.”
