TV Licence Contact Number: 0300 790 6144

You should call 0300 790 6144 by phone if you want to learn more about the UK TV Licences required before the government can give you the all-clear to watch TV in this country.

The UK Government has found an ingenious way of gathering revenue to support the BBC. In the UK, if you own a TV or if you intend to watch TV at your home, you have to pay the government for a TV Licence. Without a TV Licence, you are technically a criminal if you turn on the TV set at home. You’ll also be subjected to the hassles of investigations, court hearings and large fines.
