This site is about TV Licensing? (the “television licensing authority”) . . .
. . . and how they treat those who do not have television.
I have not had a television for many years. One would think that would be an end to it, but it isn’t. One cannot simply refuse this entertainment service, without appearing to be dishonest in the eyes of TV Licensing? (a.k.a. the Television Licensing Authority or TVLA). The non-viewer does not fit into their framework. To TV Licensing? there are licence-payers and licence-dodgers and the non-viewer (with whom they really have no business) is treated as a suspect licence-dodger. Whether there should be a licence-fee at all (or the present organisation to collect it) is a new and interesting topic; however, this site is primarily concerned with how the mechanism of BBC funding unfairly affects those who do NOT have television.
–How the British television licensing system unfairly affects those who do NOT have TV (Marmalade.net)
In the UK, an impressive public broadcasting system (the BBC) is funded by expensive licences extracted from TV owners. But not everyone watches TV.
