This week we’d like to highlight ruighean’s comment on the post Saving Money on TV License over at the new HackCollege.co.uk. His comment reads:

Taken from TVLicensing.co.uk:

“You must be covered by a valid TV Licence if you watch or record television programmes as they’re being shown on TV. It makes no difference what equipment you use – whether it’s a laptop, PC, mobile phone, digital box, DVD recorder or a TV set – you still need a licence.

You do not need a TV Licence to view video clips on the internet, as long as what you are viewing is not being shown on TV at the same time as you are viewing it.”

There was a small dispute in the comment thread over whether or not a TV licensing fee was required if you solely watch your content online. ruighean cleared up the air for all of us. Thanks!
