I really object to paying that fuckin thing these days, I've got Sky and I only watch the live footie and the odd episode of Family Guy providing it's a new one. Further, I'm paying twice, once for Sky and once for the channels I never watch on terrestrial TV :evil: Plus, I'm paying for shitbox so-called celebrities. Chris Moyles ain't worth the wages he earns, Jonathon Toss is worth fuck all permanently :evil:

And I don't watch ads :rofl:

Freesat would give you everything but the footie (which is portrayed by the broadcaster as the nation's game - patently untrue - , just to keep you in their financial grasp).

Why not cancel if only to see what they offer you in terms of discount/package upgrade ?

Maybe, but at least you have the option of avoiding the 'paid by advertising' channels

Exactly. And if they see the glow of a TV through the window, they knock on the door.

the detector vans are just a scare tactic. They'll drive around an area for a while and drop leaflets off. Scare most people into paying up

Mr Git :)

What used to piss me off about TV licensing was before me and the missus got married I used to get a letter through the door every time I bought something TV related, because the licence wasn't in my name, even though there was a licence for the address :stomp:

I even phoned them up to tell them that we were living together. However the next time I bought a TV the same letter arrived....idiots :mad:

Now we have the same surname their daft computer doesn't seem to dish out these letters.

Actually I remember being asked for my name and address the last time I bought a freeview box. I probably got some junk letter as well, btu I can't remember. i'm considering buying a new TV for my Room and no doubt I'll get a 'letter' as the TV license is in Miss Smeggy's name.

I'm consdiering giving them a fictitious address, but I guess there's some law against that. :roll: :rofl:

The daft thing is Smeggy, even if you phone them up on their semi-premium rate number to tell them, the next time you get the same letter.

Computer says no :banghead:

Just ignore 'em Smeggy and let them send out one of their jobsworths, only to find you have a licence.

This is being shown again, so before throwing an engineering brick through the TV screen, i'd ask this ..... the dog would eat the baby food right!? - the baby would eat the dog food? Wouldn't it?
