Hmm I was under the impression TV licenses were per site or per address, now obviously each cell is not a different address. I think it's a con they're being charged 50p or £1 a week.

When I was at uni living in a shared house, the TV licensing people wanted a licence per lockable room - even if the address for all tenants was the same. So it looks like this is what they've done with the inmates.

Actually they don't have to have a license to use BBC Iplayer and the like as it's not live TV.... (as long as the stay clear of the Live TV section). They do however to use IPTV (which we now supply to most of our 5000 odd students)..

p.s It's per lockable room (with a TV in it), in shared accommodation...
