[access-uk] Re: difinitive answer re TV licensing

Hi John,

This is excellent.  We genuinely don't' have a tv set in our house.  We've the 
Goodmans connected to the speakers through an amp, but no tv.  How about if you 
have computers, a laptop with amonitor for example?  It's not connected to the 
set top box, but it can stream tv from places like www.tvcatchup.com  That 
gives you all the free, Freeview channels on your computer, iThingy and so 
forth.

Cheers,
Barry.

Hi Eleanor, that's right. If there's a tv connected, hence images are being
received a licence is required. It's only if someone is using a set top box
to listen, with no tv connected to the box.
                    John.
