Have you got an up to date TV Licence?
Did you know that you can be fined up to £1,000 if you are
caught watching TV without a licence?
TV Licensing is working with local organisations in Bedford to
ensure that people are aware that it is a legal responsibility to
have a TV Licence. Put simply, you need to be covered by a valid TV
Licence in order to receive or record television programmes as they
are being shown on TV.
This is the case whether you are receiving the programmes via TV
or any other device, such as a mobile phone or a PC.
TV Licensing understands that some people find it hard to pay
the annual fee of £145.50 for a colour TV Licence or £49 for a
black and white licence in one payment.
For this reason, there are a number of different ways to pay for
a TV Licence, including a cash payment plan.
The TV Licensing Payment Card is designed to make buying a TV
Licence easier for those who struggle to pay in one lump sum, by
allowing them to spread the cost into weekly, fortnightly or
monthly payments. It is open to everyone and customers can
make payments by cash or debit/credit card at any one of almost
22,000 PayPoint outlets nationwide or over the
Anyone wishing to find out more about signing up for the Payment
Card should give TV Licensing a call.
In addition to paying at a PayPoint outlet, there are many other
ways to pay. More people are choosing to pay by Direct Debit,
now used by over 14 million licence fee payers, while others choose
to pay via our website, by using a debit or credit card over the
phone or by putting a cheque in the post.
TV Licensing want to make it as easy as possible to pay and work
hard to ensure people are aware of their licensing requirements. If
you would like more information, or want to buy a TV Licence,
