This petition was submitted during the 2010–2015 Conservative – Liberal Democrat coalition government
Petition End TV Licensing
Section 365 of that Act requires that a person to whom a TV Licence is issued must pay a fee to the BBC. The nature and quantity of this fee is set out in the Communications (Television Licensing) Regulations 2004 (as amended).
Licence fees makes up about 75% of the BBC's income
Everyone in the UK who watches or records "live TV" (content as it is broadcast) needs to be covered by a TV licence, regardless of what or how you're watching.
"Live TV" is content at the time it's being broadcast on a TV channel.
Why should the public be contributing to the profits of the BBC and allowing the BBC to pay executives and so called stars extortionate salaries for the privelege of showing "Live TV".
