Here’s A Handy Loophole For Students As TV Licensing Law Is Made Legal…

As of today, the government have decided to change TV licensing laws. Whilst most people won’t really see a difference, those of you who only watch TV on BBC iPlayer will be severely affected by this new law. Thankfully, we found a loophole that will allow you to evade any trouble.

If you didn’t know, the new law is pretty simple. It basically means that you can only watch catch up TV if you have a television license. If you are watching BBC programs without one, you could see a £1000 fine come through the post.

As students are often tight on cash, I’ve decided to help you guys out with a loophole that will allow you to dodge that unwanted expense of the TV license.

If you watch TV on a device that isn’t plugged into the mains, you won’t need a TV license. Of course, that makes perfect sense. In short, charge up your laptop/tablet and watch iPlayer whilst it’s not plugged in.
