They'd have to pay ME!

Friday, November 25, 2005
Apparently in Britain you have to have a license to watch TV. And some people, amazingly enough, aren't paying it. A bit of research shows that the average household's colo(u)r TV cost them just over £10 a month last year. While this may go to support things like the BBC (yay BBC!), it still strikes me as odd to have to PAY to watch TELEVISION. Admittedly my broadcast/cable television consumption (at home) is less than about 10 minutes a month. It would be EVEN LESS if I had to pay a fee to do so. (According to the TV Licensing Authority, you don't have to pay if you just watch movies. )

How do they check this?
