Free TV licences for over 75s

Croydon Guardian: Those aged 75 and over can get a free tv licence Those aged 75 and over can get a free tv licence

TV Licensing and Independent Age are reminding Croydon residents over 75 of being able to enjoy their favourite television shows for free.

The free TV licence is for the main address of the recipient and covers all equipment being used on the property, including laptops and smartphones.

Gina Meyer, London Area Manager for Independent Age, said: “With many older people living on low incomes, the free TV licence is a valuable concession and the saving made could make a real difference to an older person.”

Anyone under the age of 75 wishing to save their £145.50 a year TV Tax can do so by connecting their Television to an internet connection and only watching on demand programs, as you only need to pay TV Tax to watch or record programs at the same time they are being transmitted.
Radio Tax was done away with years ago so you don’t need to pay anything to listen.

The BBC doesn’t provide this service for free and claims over £500,000,000 a year from the Tax Payer.
I don’t begrudge people who have worked all their lives this money but believe with rising living cost, it would be better to give them the money directly so they could spend it on food or heating rather than freezing to death while watching TV. Some might prefer a Black and While License for £49.
