Petition TV Licencing
This is a petition to government to abolish TV licencing in favour of the BBC collecting revenue on a revenue collection pay-per-view basis just like the encoded channels on SKY and Cable broadcasters.
The BBC should not dictate if a person with a TV set can't view other channels broadcast that are free and not subject to licensing.
Digital TV broadcasts via a method that means that the TV's CI+ socket can take a decoder for channels that are protected from normal viewing.
The restrictive practice by the BBC needs to stop. People have the right to view NON-BBC media without fear of prosecution.
I urge this issue to be debated in parliament and to change the way in which the BBC collects it revenues in a more fair way.
