    Really naffed off now!

    Bought a HD TV to use as a computer monitor a few weeks ago, as I watch all my movies on my PC.

    Got a letter this morning saying I need to buy a TV license, for £142.50. Problem is, I dont even watch TV on the bloody thing.

    What a bloody rip off.

    if you're only watching dvds or using it as a monitor for a console/desktop then you don't have to buy a tv license. get used to the letters though, no matter how much you tell them that you don't need one you will be harassed all the same!

    Strangely enough, when I bought me Samsung 32" HD TV. I had to give details to the lady at Argos.

    Was like I'm only using it as a monitor and for my 360. Supposedly compulsory but didn't take me details

    Yeh its standard procedure at Argos to ask for details, As long as your not using it to watch TV then you won't need to purchase a television license

    they only take your details when you buy a tele as confirmation that you have a tv licence dont they?

    Also, my mum already pays a TV license, does this cover me anyways? Or do you need a license for each TV?

    As SQMan points to (website link):

    "You don't need a licence if you don't use any of these devices to watch or record television programmes as they're being shown on TV - for example, if you use your TV only to watch DVDs or play video games, or you only watch programmes on your computer after they have been shown on TV. If this is the case, please let us know, as this helps us to keep our database up to date and means you won't receive the standard letters we send to unlicensed addresses. "
