Students warned to get a TV licence

Students have been warned they need a licence to watch TV after figures showed 80 in the Maidenhead area were caught viewing without one in the last year.

TV Licensing said the numbers are for adults aged under 25 living in the Slough postcode, including Maidenhead, and the nationwide figure was 25,000.

TV Licensing spokesman Martin Dyan said: "With nearly all students owning at least one device capable of showing live TV - such as a laptop, smartphone or tablet computer - they should know the law around being correctly licensed. 

"If you’re watching live TV on any device, including mobiles and tablets, you need a licence. 

 "Anyone caught watching TV without a licence can face prosecution and a fine of up to a £1,000."
