Mind you, you need to be USING a TV in Britain.
To watch TV in Ireland, you have to pay a licence- there are frequent threats on RTE- even non-resident TV owners (ie holiday house owners using their house for two weeks a year) need to pay a similar amount if they own a TV TV.
There are many commercials on RTE as well as this need for a licence AND
you do not need to USE your TV- if the only one you have has a broken cathode ray tube & out in the rain, you still have to pay!

'Television, television
I'm sick from looking on television,
I'm sick in the eyes, sick in the head likewis
From sitting and looking on television'
