He called his office on his mobile phone and told them the situation that I was blind and that was it. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Eleanor Burke" <eleanorburke@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

Did they not try again? A friend of mine had a similar experience in Northern Ireland.

I don't have a TV Licence, and when someone fromTV licencing called to check that I hadn't got a TV as stated on the form I filled in, I wouldn't let him in because he had no means of identifying himself to me. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Barry Hill" <barry.hill3@xxxxxxx>

That is ridiculous. I do have a smart phone, but I don't watch tv on it. Same goes for my computer. So, if I lived on my own, I would be penalised for having equipment that I didn't use. Still, I suppose it's the same for
people who only watch Sky and not BBC programmes. Sigh.

Hi Barry, maybe you could, unless you had a mobile, in which case you'd be
snookered.

Just to add a little more confusion to the mix, if you don't have a tv
with
the Goodmans, and you don't have a computer, would you be able to just get

a
black and white tv licence, and that at half price?

Cheers

Barry

Subject: [access-uk] TV licensing again

Hi everybody, a few months or so ago there was a thread regarding the
Goodmans Smarttalk freeview box, and whether or not a licence was required if someone was using the box for sound only, with no TV plugged into it,
just speakers.
The general consensus was that a licence wouldn't be required. Checking
on
the RNIB website seemed to confirm that.
As that applies to me I rang the TV licensing authority today to cancel
my
direct debit. I explained the situation to them, and told them what the
RNIB
had to say on the matter, and the guy, having gone away to check came back and said that since the box could receive a tv signal at time of broadcast

I
would require a licence, whether a TV was connected to the box or not.
Further to that he said that if I had a computer in my home I'd require a TV licence, since a computer has the potential of receiving TV broadcasts.
 Since this was completely at odds with what the RNIB said, and what
posters to this list had said I rang the RNIB to check. I haven't heard
back
from them yet, but it will be interesting to see what they say.
 According to the guy at TV licensing the only circumstance in which a
license isn't required would be if the box wasn't able to receive a
picture,
and was a sound only receiver. Mind you, given what the guy said about the need for a licence if there was a computer at the address it sounds as if
everyone needs one, since if computers do so would mobiles, since they
also
have the potential to receive a TV signal.
                   John.
