Students reminded to buy TV Licence for new electronic gadgets
TV Licensing is reminding students who received new electronic devices for Christmas that if they use them to watch television as it is broadcast they need a TV Licence.
Tablets, laptops, MP3 players and phones all offer online access to TV programmes.
Lincolnshire students have been reminded that if they use their devices to watch programmes as they're being shown, they need to be licensed.
TV Licensing spokesman for East Anglia Mark Whitehouse said: "Many students will have received gadgets as gifts, or treated themselves over the recent holiday. We want to help ensure they stay on the right side of the law. You need a TV Licence to watch or record TV programmes as they are broadcast, irrespective of how you receive them, what channel you're watching, or what device you are using. If you don't have a licence you risk prosecution and a fine of up to £1,000."
