    Is this the biggest mental health card ever played?

    Still on 400k a year for sitting in the hoose.

    Surely that'll be an insurance company paying that?

    I am quite traditional in my outlook and don't understand how you can legally avoid paying for a TV licence. However, there have been comments made on forums where people say they don't pay for a TV licence. How do you do that legally? Would like to consider this.

    Cancellation and refund request form on line was how I did it.

    Dinnae think you have to but I'd assume you wud get bombarded with letters if you don't.

    You don't need a licence if you don't watch live TV, record live TV or watch BBC I player.

    Don't give them the dough.

    Thanks. Don't think I could obey the rules. Is there anything about owning a TV?

    You can own a TV and watch any recording from non live TV or downloaded programme except BBC I player.

    To be honest with you I doubt they even check much now.

    Unless you invite them in at half 7 whilst the Mrs is watching EastEnders the chances of getting caught even if you occasionally watch live TV is minimal.

    I've not had one for 5 years, never even had a letter.

    Not strictly correct - you should have a license if you have equipment capable of showing live TV.

    Martin Lewis the money expert site explains it pretty clearly.
