It looks as if we're going to have to start paying again.
Some questions:
How much is it?
Is it one per household or one each person?
How do we do it?
I'm not entering into the rights and wrongs yet.
We don't have a TV but each of us watches BBC etc on the 'puter.
Perhaps we should have a mass refusal to pay and block the prisons with OAPS!
Both of us over 75.

Fennel as far as i know it is not people who are 75 already,i thik it is people who reach 75 from now
Also i see it is going up, can't remember how much i think it is by about £3 a year,

My Dh is 75 in April. He’s applying for approx five weeks of a free licence, just to be annoying! grin

I thought everyone would have to pay, whether over 75 or not, unless on benefits. Perhaps the goalposts have been changed.

The TV licence at the moment is £154 but will go up to £157 i believe
Sorry cant do links, but have taken a pic

I think we will all have to pay, no exceptions.

Sorry, that photograph proves me wrong.

You're right Calendargirl. Everybody will have to pay, unless they're receiving pension credit.

I pay £12 something a month by d/d and it's going up by about 30p per month.

Thanks for the replies - so we should get a letter about it eventually.
We don't receive pension credit.
