According to the bumph about digitalisation ALL TVs were supposed to be capable of receiving the new signals but this proved to be untrue about my set. It's sat in the corner for months playing the odd video and unplugged from the (useless) aerial cable........I'll go all John Cleese about it in a minute .........'THIS TV SET IS DECEASED!'
All the info I've read says that if you do not watch/access TV as it is broadcast
you do not need a licence. If this means that I have to prove I don't then they will have to prove that I do (which I don't). If they have the technology it will show that I don't. They've had my continuous licence fee since about 1979. If they think it's worth prosecuting good luck to them......I have good friends in journalistic places
