why do we have a tv license
I don't have a TV, why do I keep getting letters sent to me? We write to all addresses where there is no TV Licence or a current declaration to say that one isn t needed. If you tell us you, we will stop sending you letters. We may confirm this with a visit. We do this because we ve found that when we visit and make contact, almost one in six people who say they don t need a licence actually do need one. Remember, a TV Licence isn t just for TV sets.
It applies to any device. If you, we ll stop sending letters to your address for up to six months. If you have just told us you don t need a licence and then receive a letter from us a day or so after, this is usually because our records are being updated. You don t need to respond.

The TV licensing organisation says the fee provides a range of TV, radio and online content, as well as developing new ways to deliver it. In addition to funding BBC programmes and services, a proportion of the licence fee contributes to the costs of rolling out broadband to the UK population and funding Welsh Language TV channel S4C and local TV channels. This was agreed with the government as part of the 2010 licence fee settlement.
The licence fee allows the BBCs UK services to remain free of adverts and independent of shareholder and political interest. In 2013/14 the BBC reported that, of an average monthly spend of 12. 13 per household, it spent 8 on TV, 2. 30 on radio, 61p on online services, 73p on other services and production costs and 49p on licence fee collection. The licence fee costs 145. 50 annually. That fee was frozen in 2010 up until March 31, 2017.
