TV licence advice for students
TV Licensing is working with university admissions service UCAS to help new students from Swansea understand the law around watching TV before moving into university halls or rented accommodation.
The aim is to make students aware of the need to be covered by a TV licence to watch or record programmes shown on TV, or any device. Anyone caught watching TV without a licence can face a fine of up to £1,000.
Richard Chapman, TV Licensing spokesperson for the South West, said: "Starting university for the first time can be both exciting and daunting. With so much to think about, TV Licensing is on hand to clearly explain when a TV licence is needed. A TV licence can be bought online in minutes and costs £145.50 for the year. There are many ways to pay including weekly, monthly and quarterly payments."
