TV licence

If you plan on watching live TV, or want to download or stream programmes from BBC iPlayer, you are required to buy a relevant TV licence. This is true whether you use a TV, computer, laptop, tablet or phone to watch programmes.

A TV licence costs £157.50.

If you already have a TV licence, you will need to advise them of your change of address by going to, or visit your local Post Office. You could face a fine of £1,000 if you watch or record live TV without a licence.
