Well just got back in and a note through the door saying they have been to check on me as to why I don’t have a licence. Find it all threatening tbh. 

If you speak to them just say I'm legally licence free and close the door.

No other conversation. 

Sign or take nothing,  confirm nothing including your name. 

And to add any one L.L.F. should remove the aerial from tv to wall.

My issue though is that I’m a woman on my own. I don’t know how you can prove a negative. How can i prove I don’t watch live tv?   I can’t.  It all seem a tad Orwellian to me. 


You don't do anything, you either stick it in the bin / shred it for hamster bedding / wipe your arse with it - this worthless bit of paper (with it's threatening overtones, "I VISITED TODAY, TO FIND OUT WHY!") is just the same sort of crap like takeaway menus/charity collection bits of paper shoved through your letterbox like so much other junk.

Then you get on with your life.

TV licence goons are the lowest form of commision based sales pondlife goons (actually employed by Crapita) that only flourish on the gullible and easy fooled.   They are usually easily spotted in the wild by their general scruffy unkempt appearance and holding a PDA with the opening line of trying to identify you.   Of course, if you're expecting an amazon delivery you'd know and they'd have a parcel - you'd look out the window to check.  The Crapita goons deserve all the crap they get.

Here's what you do (ignore Rule 2 - do the 'revoke implied rights of access' thing), they are like vampires, they shy away from the light of cameras/phones.  Just remain silent and film the goon. Follow the goon back to their cars, because heaven forbid they are using their vehicles and it's not insured for business.  
Even better. Just ignore the goons and get on with your life

Don't even do that. 

You're under no obligation to speak to any fucker.  Too many people will cowtow to implied authority - it's a pavlovian response, just to give up personal information.  Even for taking deliveries for other people I'll give a blag name, non of your fucking business!

I am a filthy lawbreaker.

No licence, but I watch talk radio on YouTube at home and at work.

Therefore I am evading a home licence fee, a commercial licence fee and probably a PRS licence fee.

Fuck 'em.

Just watched the first couple of episodes of Squid Game and it’s actually really good, even on my 15 inch laptop screen. It’s exactly the sort of thing the BBC would have made in the 70s but now wouldn’t touch with a barge pole. It reminded me of The Prisoner in a few ways, only vastly more violent and visceral.

Currently I am in a household with a tv that regularly watches the bbc and other live broadcasts. And am fully licenced.  I foresee, in the future that my household will not watch any live broadcasts or iplayer content.  When that happens,  what is the best way to stop paying the fee?  From what I am being told here and elsewhere, I am better off just being confrontational with enforcers than going through the correct procedure and declaring my exemption?  That can't be right.

Please advise.  This is a genuine plea.

The text means nothing.  They carefully write all sorts of crap.  I regularly get letters which I don't read as I have perfected the art of removing the address in situ before recycling!  I had heard they were using third parties to deliver stuff but not sure about this one.

I told them (hard to find the place on their website though!) but it was only valid for two years or so so I just ignored everything after that, like I do all flyers.

I’ve two tellys. Neither are connected to the ariel.  I rarely watch them and when i do, it’s netflix, prime of very occasionally other catch-up channels. I had hell of a time cancelling my licence. I eventually did and received some kind of special document to say they agreed I didn’t need a license and would leave me alone.  I think my mistake was i bought a new telly a few months ago.  They can fuck right off, it’s basically demanding money with menaces.

You might call that a TV if you wish.

Just say your husband deals with that stuff and he's not home or that you do you watch TV and are busy on a work call right now sorry. 

There is nothing to be gained from talking to them past a 'No, thank you. I do not need what you are selling' or letting them in, it only gives them things they can try to use against you. 

 

I work at home and have had 2 of those letters when I was at home and noone had knocked, I wonder if they get the commission if/when you pay just from 'visiting' the house and don't need to actually interact.

Buy your TV Licence.

Doing so helps keep the cost down for others.

Every one who stops buying their TV Licence just because they do not need one is being selfish.

Think of it like getting your jabs.  :)

You will potentially have to declare every 2 years and any time you move. 

The first letter I have every time I move is the license letter, straight into the bin it goes. 

 

Do you declare to the police that you haven't stolen anything or raped anyone recently any time they ask, with a letter every few months to years even if you declare that you haven't?

 

Every letter from them I get now makes me happy, knowing the cost I am adding to, I burn them to increase the BBC's CO2 footprint too now, fuck em. 

 

Just cancel the license properly, cancel the DD and ignore them for the rest of your life.

      It’s really hard to know what to make of this story..   other than it just ticks all the usual BBC boxes for minority disabled blah blah etc.


       
      Charities are seemingly full of sh1t.   What is “horrifying and tragic” about the fairly obvious fact that lots of over 80s are in some way disabled,  or that young people with medical disabilities are more physically vulnerable.
      I sometimes wonder if there’s anything the BBC can’t spin a patronising identity political piece out of
