Do you need a TV licence if you don't watch BBC? Everything you can watch without one

1 min read


It is also worth noting that BBC iPlayer is the only catch-up service requiring a licence, meaning that people can watch ITV Player or Channel 4 on demand if they do not watch live TV. 

It should also be noted that people do not need a TV licence in order to own a TV, as it covers a range of devices, unless it is used to watch licensable content. 

In 2020, an estimated 1.7 million people successfully went without a licence by watching non-licensable content, saving them £159 annually. 

Alongside watching content that doesn’t require a licence, certain groups of people could receive a discounted or free licence.
