    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.

    I guess now if students don't have a telly and just use iplayer and the like, they are still required to buy a licence. However it will be harder for them to prove I'll bet.

    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)..

    As for students... it's got to the point that new accommodation doesn't actually have aerial sockets in the spec... as they almost all exclusivly use BBC Iplayer and the like.

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