TV Licensing must prove you watch broadcasts

I suspect this would get overturned if they did ever defend it to a higher court, but it seems to be the situation at present.

I always thought that was the case. Wasn't the point of the TV detector vans that they could detect that you were using your set to receive broadcasts?

TV detector fans NEVER existed.

Urban Myth! I refuse to believe that "detector vans" ever existed.

I'm a fan of TV detectors. Or is it detectives?

Surely it could be proven that he wasn't watching tele because no aerial was hooked up? Plus, the vans 'can' see if a signal is being received!

re: TV Licensing must prove you watch broadcasts

how many cases in court have used evidance collected from a TV detector? ZERO. Ergo they do not exist and never have.

they can only fine you if you have equipment capable of receiving television transmisions, it also includes laptops and pc's that have programs installed for watching TV, it does not matter if you are watching sky or digital. but you can watch dvd's on your pc and laptop with out a licence

So, as the tax ahem, I mean TV license is used to fund the BBC, if I erased BBC channels from my TV, would I be exempt from paying?!
