      Too fuckin right it's a scam, just like any other 'tax'. When the elections come up, they will say they are doing away with 'this' and everybody cums in their pants. Then after the election, they introduce a new tax and everybody cums in their pants again, coz it's not the 'old tax'. How nice the government are!

    • @brendonbeeks. WOW. Seriously? I can NOT belive that shit. It would be like me having to pay a tax to Ecuador Banana Producers, because i own a blender?
      Now THIS is really something worth having a RIOT for, and burn down the fukn BBC to the ground for doing that.

      WOW. Still can't fukn belive it. They make you pay for free TV and give away free money to some camel shaggers that don't even speak English. OMG.

      It's also the reason the BBC produces some truly world class media, e.g. Blue Planet series, Horizon, BBC World News, iPlayer (free online streaming). BBC channels don't have advertisements so it needs to be funded by a TV license. The guy in this video is just a fucking bum.

  • £136 a year at present it funds the BBC TV and Radio Stations which are all ad free. But if you own a TV you have to pay it regardless of whether you watch/listen to the BBC or not. That's what pisses people off, personally I think it's a bargain for what the BBC produces, but that's just me.

  • This is a small summary of what we Brits have to pay in tax.

    £150 a year for T.V licence
    20% on everything we buy, excluding food but not hot food.
    24% gets taken from our wages (income tax & national health service).
    Between £800 and £2500 council tax per year to pay for police, fire & local government.
    Car road tax is £250 per year to be aloud to drive on the roads.
    and 61% of car fuel cost goes straight back to the government.

    I think we're still paying for an Empire that doesn' More..

      Depends what you class as `decent TV` ... Planet Earth, Panorama (etc, etc) isn't `decent TV?` What the hell does (for example) Channel 4 have? Million pound drop? Hollyoaks? Is that `decent TV`, in your opinion?

    • @fortuzero I'm calling it solely BBC TV is this is what you solely pay for, regarding the TV licence.

      Every other channel is paid for by advertising.

      So, like I say, 10-20% of BBC broadcasting (you've paid your licence fee to legally view) is generally ok. There's just too much shit on TV, I watch 'catch up TV' and stuff is suggested and I watch that.

      I've got no qualms with Planet Earth or similar David Attenbrough related material, most of it is good.

  • Judging by a lot of comments here, there seems to be a lot of incorrect beliefs about the UK TV licence (& that is just how TV licencing (i.e. Capita), & the BBC like it).

    To clarify:
    You only need a TV licence if you watch or record programmes as they are being broadcast. You do *not* need a licence if you only play games, watch DVDs, and watch catch-up services (e.g. on iPlayer). You do *not* need a TV licence just for simply owning a TV.

      Amazing what the true cost of living is in this country with all the stealth taxing going on. Not just deductions from people's wages, but energy bill taxes, fuel taxes, TV license fees, VAT on a ton of stuff we buy.

  • There is no advertising on BBC channels. All those great natural history documentaries the BBC put out? paid for by TV license payers. Top Gear? paid for by TV license payers. iPlayer? paid for by TV license payers. and everything else they do.
    Personally I don't mind paying it, it's not exactly expensive. Infact it's a bargain when you consider what you get in return. I mean it costs 10x as much for access to Skys services, for example, and you still get subjected to advertising. 'TV License' i More..

      Yeah,...as an American who pays an average of EIGHTY DOLLARS A MONTH just for my telie service, I don't think I'd have any qualms about paying for "tv license" if I lived in the UK. A couple questions about the license; how much does it cost, how long is it good for, and how many channels do you get? Is there any "varriants" to the licensing? For example,...is there a "less expensive" license that get's you the "minimum access" and a more expensi More..

    • @PenceFan It's about £145 a year, for that you get all the basic terrestrial channels (some in HD), plus some Sky output. I'm not sure how many channels that is because (to my eternal damnation) I have Sky+ HD, which is about 1000 channels.

    No one needs a T.V license.
    You are not binded into a legal contract with BBC when you buy a T.V
    Why pay £150 when ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5 are free to watch.

    Also it's not a license but a contract

      Yea, why pay for quality commercialyl unbiased programming when you can just watch the dumbfuck channels like Channel 4 and ITV1.

      We don't need no decent documentaries, we're happy with My Fat Gypsy Wedding and Hollyoaks and Million Pound Drop. I especially like all the adverts being forced down my stupid lazy throat for dumb shit I can buy that I don't need.

      It's not a license but a contract?? What does that mean, if you could elucidate I'm sure it would be fascinating.

      When you get a contract phone you pay ex amount a year? or do you get a license?.
      I do watch bbc its there to be watched so I watch it, and more than itv channel 4 and 5.
      BBC does advertise too, it advertises its commercials...

      I'm really torn about this issue. On one hand, tax subsiized channels like PBS and BBC are most informative channels, unlike corporately owned ones which are only concerned about profit. It's like the school system, private vs public.

      On the other hand these channels seem to be left leaning. And if i was conservative i wouldn't be pissed about being taxed by them. Imagine fox news taxing people *shudder*
