Call the free TV Licensing contact number on 0300 790 6144 if you have any queries about any of the services that you have received from TV Licensing, including if you’ve experienced any problems with the service.
Within the UK and Crown dependencies, there is a rule that states that any household watching or recording live television transmissions is required to hold a television license. They’re also required to have a license if they want to receive on-demand programme services provided by the BBC on their iPlayer catch up service. The income from the license is used to fund the television, radio and online services for the BBC.
