And that's just shy of £300 per annum, which is just shy of twice the licence fee.

Only if you use all 3 of them, Steve. By a (maybe mis) interpretation of the rules three family members or friends can pay for one each and share :-) I only pay for Amazon Prime and paid for NowTV while Game of Thrones was running (6 weeks)

Mr Red

DtG - you need a TV licence if you have a TV - or as the law puts it "broadcast receiving apparatus"

Not so. It states quite clearly that -

You must have a TV Licence if you:

    watch or record programmes on a TV, computer or other device as they’re broadcast
    download or watch BBC programmes on iPlayer – live, catch up or on demand

So you only need a TV license if you watch TV being broadcast or streamed BBC programmes. Any other streaming is license exempt.
