Subject: RE: Tech: TV licence rules concerning PC, Mob UK
A question (just curious):
If I don't have a TV of any sort, but use the browser on my laptop to watch stored - not live - programmes on, say, the BBC iPlayer site, is a TV licence required? I'm not talking about live broadcasts but material which has been archived and made available for a specified period of time.
My view is that no licence is required for this. If that is not the case, then any household with only a laptop would have to pay for a TV licence, whether they had a TV or not.
