Questions about TV Licensing? Maybe we can help.
Can I get a refund if I’m over 75 years and paid for my TV License?
When you turn 75, you will need to apply so that your eligibility can be checked. After your application is processed, all money overpaid by you will be refunded, backdating to the first month of your 75th birthday or counting from when you started making payments after you turned 75.
I have 3 TV sets in my home, do I need a license for all of them?
One TV License covers all TV equipment in a household listed on the license by you or any member of your family. But for tenants or paying guests, they will need to buy their own TV License.
I’m moving out, can I transfer my license?
Your TV License can be transferred to someone if only that person will be living at your address and will be covered by your license. Give your signed written agreement to TV Licensing by sending it to their address so that it can be transferred. Include your name, address, TV License number and the new license holder’s name.
I’m struggling to pay my TV License, what do I do?
Give the TV licence team a call and they will arrange something to suit you. Your payment plan can be made around the dates you receive your salary or benefit. In all, they will find a suitable payment plan that will be convenient for you.
I don’t own a TV, do I still need a TV License?
A TV License is not just to cover a TV set, if you are using a desktop computer, a laptop, game console, digital box or DVD or VHS recorder. You need to be covered by a license to watch or record live TV programmes on any channel and download or watch any BBC programmes on iPlayer. So whether it’s on a TV or not, once you are able to view on a device, it needs to be covered.
