As you’re packing up your belongings ready to load them onto the removal van, there’s one thing that will most certainly be out of sight and out of mind – that’s your TV Licence. Anyone watching live TV broadcasts here in the UK is required to have a TV Licence by law. Whether you’re watching a television mounted on your living room wall, or you’re watching live television on your laptop or some other device – you must have a TV Licence. They’re registered by address, so if you move house and forget to update the information on your TV Licence, you could be in for an expensive, nasty shock.
How do you update the address on your TV Licence?
Updating the address on your TV Licence is remarkably easy, just logon to the TVLicensing.com website and you can change your address up to three months before you move. If you have trouble doing it online, just call the TV Licence helpline for assistance. All you’ll need in order to update the address is your TV Licence number.
You can also update other things at the same time including any name changes, telephone numbers and email addresses. It’s important to ensure that all information on your TV Licence is kept up to date for a variety of reasons.
The rules and regulations surrounding TV Licensing are fairly ambiguous. If you’re watching any live television broadcast at all on any channel, you must have a TV Licence. Whether you’re watching the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Sky or any other channel (free or premium) you need a licence. The same goes for recording live TV on a PVR, VHS, DVD or any other device – if you’re recording live TV, you need a licence. If you only watch TV programs via catch-up services like the BBC’s iPlayer or the ITV Player service, you don’t need a TV Licence.
