You need a TV licence to watch anything through Virgin Media.

When you sign up for services VM should check the address they are servicing has a valid licence. If you don't have a valid licence you are in breach of contract, & VM can disconnect you, although I've never heard of them actually doing this.

The law has changed to close a loophole which allowed people to watch TV through iPlayer without paying the licence fee to do so. Quite right, don't you think so?
