DO YOU HAVE A TV LICENCE?


Just like every household in the UK, MOD bases and accommodation need to be licensed.

Whether you live on or off the base, you need to be covered by a TV Licence to watch or record programmes as they're being shown on TV - on your tablet, mobile phone, laptop, TV or any other device.

TV Licensing Officers are authorised to visit MOD bases to check unlicensed addresses.

If you're watching TV illegally, you risk prosecution and a fine of up to £1000, plus legal costs.
