Dear Mr Potts
Thank you for your email of 14 November, which has been recorded under your complaint reference 551564. Please use this number if you wish to contact us again.
I must remind you that whatever your personal view may be, it's still against the law to watch broadcast television programme services without a TV Licence.
We visit all unlicensed addresses in the UK and anyone found to need a licence, could be prosecuted and fined up to £1000.
Last year, each household's colour licence cost about £12.13 per month. On average, this is how the BBC spent the money in 2010/11 (source - TV Licensing annual review 2011 which can be found on the TV licensing website):
TV - £8.01
Radio - £2.16
Online - £0.66
Other - £0.61
Collection - £0.42
Digital ? Marketing / help scheme - £0.27
Total - £12.13
I hope I've been able to explain the situation and thank you for taking the time to contact us.
Naturally, I have replied... More later.
