Normally I evade (though I only watch online), this year though I actually have one as my housemate, bless his cotton socks, bought one thinking he'd get done by the inspectors otherwise.

We didnt get one for our uni house but because the old tenants had one, they kept sending us letters. 2 of my housemates watched football all the time and they stopped after the people sent us a letter threatening to take us to court Just went online and said we didnt have a licence. Truth is they can only prove you're watching TV if they come round and see you physically watching it.

and as long as they can't see the tv from the door they can never prove it as you don't have to let them in. foolproof system.

Hillsborough is a bit more than just football. It went beyond that when people died and then police and politicians made a concious effort to blame fans. And the fact that the city wasn't just willing to sit back and accept the bullshit meant that it got tarnished as well.

Do people still watch TV??

Whenever you get the nasty little TV licence letter on the mat that says they have "right of access" to your property, they don't. I sent the letter below to their return address i stopped receiving their nasty letters and no one has approached my property since

To Whom It may concern,
I do not require a television licence as I do not receive or record live television broadcasts. Despite this , I have received numerous letters from your organization and from the Courts and Tribunals service addressed to a Mr/Mrs ?????? who does not even reside at the above mentioned address. I have been informed that I am committing a criminal offense and that a warrant of arrest will be issued within 3 days of your last letter.

Your employees and agents acting on your behalf may not call at my address.
This letter provides you with prior written warning that such a visit will constitute trespass and harassment, and that I am withdrawing the implied right of access to the property from your organization.

Please note that I am under no obligation to provide you with any of my details , including my name, and that since I am the legal occupier of this property I am entitled to withdraw your implied right of access.

This fact was confirmed by the BBC in June 2009 in response to a FOI request RF120090807. This response states that “ TV Licencing does not legally require the name of an individual to action such a request”.
Yours Sincerely
The Legal Occupier

I work in Liverpool, but I actually live on the Wirral. I just don't go around parading about the disaster.

I did used to live there though, but only for a year. The reason for my location is that most people know where Liverpool is.

Nah, I'm the same. I couldn't give two fucks about football in the slightest.

My housemates asked if I wanted to go to the pub to watch the "big game" (whatever that was) and I said "you know I dont watch football". They said "But its the big game!" and responded with "I couldnt care if it was the northern hemisphere against the southern hemisphere. I would much rather sit here playing Tomb Raider or any game compared to watching a bunch of highly overpaid drama queens kicking some leather around a field."

I despise all talk about football, all notions of it.

Like, the whole point of having teams is that each team is supposed to be representative of a town/city and the players would all be from the town/city. But as there's so many foreign players in the teams nowadays, that it just makes the idea of having the teams representing the town/city arbitrary.

I bought one as soon as I went to university. I don't particularly care if I can get away with out having one. I'm happy to pay for the BBC to keep providing me with the great programmes they do.

So it's kind of like when PBS here asks viewers for donations. Only you're forced to pay and the government sends people to your house if you don't. Yikes.

I have one this year, but probably won't bother next year. I only really watch live TV when I'm just sitting around eating so it's really not much of a loss if I don't bother.

And as much as I appreciate the BBC, I think TV licenses are a bit of a sham.

I got a letter before but I think I told them online that the TV we had wasn't connected to the Aerial. It was a pretty painless process.
