Is it a requirement that one is in possession of a TV license in order to view broadcasts whether free-to-air or not? I ask because I'm pondering over this whole TV business at the moment and don't want to run foul of the authorities during our UK visit next year for owning a television but not holding a valid UK TV license.

I am guessing but I think that when onsite you are ok as they will have their license, we don't have a separate on for our Eriba.

The UK TV licence is to permit you to receive any TV transmissions on any number of TV sets at your normal address.
I'm unsure about the situation when at a caravan site but I think it only applies to UK residents as they have to have a UK address to register the licence at.

I had a quick (and moderately unsatisfactory) Google on this subject a minute ago, Fred.

I ended up with the impression that a visitor like Alan would be covered by the license held by the site at which he was staying, which is what Ellen said.

Can't think of any other system which would be even remotely workable, really.

The other thing is that if you weren't staying at a site which had a license, or were wild camping, there's more chance of winning the Euromillions jackpot than getting caught by a couple of goons in a TV detector van.

Oh didn't I tell you, my numbers came up six months ago now. Does that mean I'd best keep one eye out for these goons?

I would not worry about it, how long would your visit be? I doubt they have the machinery in place for less than 3 months.

Thanks for the link, and yes clicking on the Business and Organisations tab appears to suggest that as long as the campsite owners are in possession of a valid licence then any visitors to the site are also covered.

I think that the odds are even greater than you think Pete. I recently read an article about the so called detector vans, apparently there were never as many as was claimed and those that did exist have suffered severe attrition. Many were never even fitted out and spent their lives in storage and those that did function were often out of action for want of suitably trained technicians to man them. So if you every saw one it was probably like some of the Gatso speed cameras that have no innards!
