    If your parents have a TV License and you watch whatever you're watching on the BBC iPlayer from your devices' own batteries (so not plugged in to the mains) you'll be covered anyway?

    I'm assuming you're going to moving into halls in September?

    That's absolutely ridiculous but I guess it's one way to stop people saying they're legally covered by a license when in reality, they're not.

    You'd actually end up in credit if you decide to do that instead of paying for a TV license which is crazy...

    I know, it really is. Especially with the BBC cutting bbc three, you dont get as much for your money anymore, i d be perfectly happy if they got adverts instead of making everyone pay so much.

    they can't trace your IP address if you have not got a TV license. The BBC go to peoples houses and flats if they have not bought a TV license from them. they search the house for a TV if person has a TV then they have to buy a TV licence if not then they just go.
