BBC Channels

Can I remove all BBC channels from my channel list so I don't have to pay the TV license fee?

Re: BBC Channels

No, you can't remove them. And even if you did you'd still need a TV Licence:

https://www.tvlicensing.co.uk/check-if-you-need-one

The law says you need to be covered by a TV Licence to:

  • watch or record programmes as they’re being shown on TV, on any channel
  • watch or stream programmes live on an online TV service (such as ITV Hub, All 4, YouTube, Amazon Prime Video, Now TV, Sky Go, etc.)
  • download or watch any BBC programmes on iPlayer.

This applies to any device you use, including a TV, desktop computer, laptop, mobile phone, tablet, games console, digital box or DVD/VHS recorder.

Erm! Its a TV Licence, not a BBC Licence.

Like saying "I've got a car sitting out in the road but it doesn't go anywhere, so I don't need to pay road tax".

Oh yes you do.

Re: BBC Channels

Hello Goodrum01

As @nodrogd has advised

The License fee is chargeable and we have no say in this matter regarding payment
