TV licences in Warrington go online

First published in News

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.”

Ours has automatically been renewed and payment taken for over 5 years now and as such we have NEVER received a papren reminder OR a paper licence in return so what's new about this scheme?

Will people get a reduction in licence fees now considering how much the TV bods have saved over the years so far and how much more they now say they are going to save too ?

I disagree with the TV licence why should I pay for BBC just because my TV set up will pick it up. It should be scrambled like SKY etc and if I wan't it I will pay. We are forced to pay this licence only because we can receive it. I get unwanted mail in my emails so should I be forced to pay for that? I don't like the boring BBC don't want the boring BBC and certainly don't want to pay for the boring BBC.
Still Grumpy

you don't need one for pc....only live broadcasting, you can watch demand of all channels though internet and still not need one but they wont tell you that.

So what? I don't recall signing a piece of paper to pay Vehicle Excise Duty, Income Tax or not to smoke cannabis and/or go nude in the high street.

Six TV stations (plus investment in various UKTV stations), 7 national radio stations plus local ones, excellent website - it's very good value.

Just spend ten minutes (if your brain doesn't melt) watching Fox News to see the future without the beeb.
