    Nonsense.



    I think it's more far fetched to say they aren't using any BBC services. Although watching live content from other providers does also require you to have the license (open to be proved wrong on that one though) - so your still breaking the law regardless.



    Owning the TV license gives you the right to use certain services, using those services and not paying for them is stealing. I'd be fairly confident that those services are being consumed in pretty much every case of someone owning a TV.
    BBC is shown allover the world....Why do the people in other countries not have to pay then?

    BBC is such a corrupt,Politically motivated agenda....I refuse to pay it.

    Funnily enough, I'm not in charge of that decision. I'd assume they get significantly less coverage than what we get or the countries that receive it do actually pay or its just something where the burden of paying lays with the country it's produced in. Ultimately it doesn't really matter though - you don't get to disagree with the law cause it upsets you.

    Aye, maybe I've just watched too much match of the day and Dr Foster and now I'm fully corrupted to what the beeb want me to think. Or maybe it's not a 94 year old institutionalised propaganda machine. I guess both have merits. 😊

    You tell them brother, the BBC is just a propoganda tool for the deep state.

    The biggest show on the network? Strictly Come Dancing - No normal person actually likes ballroom dancing but do you know who does? THE ROTHCHILDS!

    I also found it inexplicable how Reggie Yates kept getting work on the BBC. That was until I found out he once DJíd at GEORGE SOROSís daughters sweet 16th!

    Makes you think.

    This made me chuckle - why not just be honest and say you don't want to pay for it rather than pretend it's some moral, value led Crusade against the BBC ......

    Do BBC channels not shoe adverts in their global channels?

    Also, its a projection of british 'soft power'.

    Live yes but on catchup you can watch non-beeb without.
    I doubt anyone restricts themselves to that.

    Yes.

    I use my phone to listen to the radio however.
    Well if you use a radio you will by law need to fork out for a tv liscense, your choice not paying for one but don't be surprised at a tap on your door from the detector van people, check the web for the requirements for a liscense and you might be surprised .

    There are different degrees of wrong IMO.

    I have IPTV now, and had a dodgy sky box with card sharing for years until that went tits up.

    The worry of not having a TV licence does not even register with me, but i suppose i have no real morals on this subject, and if i am perfectly honest, it makes not one jot of difference what anyone says about it, when putting the other side of the argument forward.

    That picture doesnít say that you need a TV License to listen to things like Radio X.

    However if that IS the case I am shocked by that

    It says that if you use any of they devices to watch live TV or stream BBC IPlayer you need a TV License.

    Nothing about any other television stations or radio stations.

    Getting caught doing what?

    Haha if youíre happy to lay Gary Linekar 1.3 or 1.7M a year, not sure what one it is, even though you donít use any of the BBCís services then pay it.

    All of the above statement applies to me.

    2 simple questions, what do you watch on your devices? and are any of them live or recorded?

    Scotland can be a beacon, within these islands and beyond, for a socially just and sustainable society. Whilst there are many priorities which will require independence, there is also much that can and must be done now by the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Government.

    You don't need a licence to listen to the radio, BBC or otherwise.

    http://www.tvlicensing.co.uk/faqs/FAQ102

    Personally, I'd pay the licence fee for the BBC radio output alone. There's not a network anywhere that has its depth, variety and amount of output.... and no adverts.

    I agree with this. Love BBC6 , radio 4 and some of the documentaries on BBC Scotland are excellent...

    I honestly can't remember the last time I watched anything live on BBC.

    In fact barring match of the day and sportscene I don't think I watch any BBC output with any regularity

    So from my perspective I get extremely low value for the monthly subscription fee and if it was a genuine subscription I would happily cancel it.

    I honestly don't think there is much need for the BBC in its current form anymore and would welcome a change to its funding route...an explicit tax on all the nations households just doesn't seem justified in today's world.

    All tv is crap these days (although, I'll concede there are a few exceptions). The choice is either pro-gov blah-blah-blah or progs for dummies (ironically, they're both the same).

    I couldn't disagree more. The last 10 years has surely seen TV overtake Movies
    For highest quality of writing, production and acting...
    Some examples :
    Sopranos
    The Wire
    Breaking Bad
    Mad Men
    Curb your enthusiasm
    Parks & rec
    Black mirror
    Handmaidens tail
    House of cards
    Stranger things etc etc
    Planet earth
    OJ made in America


    The list goes on and on


    I don't think we have ever had such quality TV

    Not sure why there's a licensing distinction between beeb and non-beeb for catchup viewing when there's no distinction for live viewing. To me that seems illogical captain.

    Exactly. Hence why live TV watching on the BBC is a very very rare event for me these days and I reckon I wouldn't really miss it in the slightest, live or catch up.

    Not that I actually watch much TV anyway so maybe I'm not the best barometer of such things.

    Because you canít typically isolate receiving beeb and non-beeb live channels, however you can isolate using catch-up services, eg iPlayer, 4od or ITV player.
