Bite back at the BBC!

The following article describes the actions taken by a long-standing Leicestershire BNP member, who was so incensed by the anti-Nationalist bias of the Corporation that he sought and found a way of viewing programmes without the need to pay a licence fee.

The TV licence is not required if you do not watch or record TV as its being broadcast, so if you only watch on demand services then no licence is required. There are plenty of on demand channels and more are on the way. There is BBCIPlayer, 4OD, DEMAND5, Amazon instant, Netflix and if you own a Sony playstation 3 or playstation 4, Sony kindly give you  'vidzone", an on demand music video channel where you can search for all your favourite videos and put them into your personal playlist to play at any time you like. You can even have multiple play lists for different moods.Netflix and Amazon instant are subscription based at £6.00 a month for unlimited access to films and TV series like Prison Break, Vampire Diaries and 24. You can also have these on multiple devices; both my lads have playstations and they both have access to Netflix at no extra charge.

I usually only watch TV in the evening, but now I can watch what I want, when I want. If I want to watch a horror film at 6pm after a day's work, then I just go on to Netflix and choose one, or choose anything I fancy for that matter, which makes live TV and the TV licence pretty much redundant in my case. And lets face it, most people only have their TV running for the back ground noise as most of the time there's nothing on. Anyway just to finish, on demand is a streaming service and should not be confused with Freeview which does need a licence but you do need to be connected to the internet to run the streaming services.  The playstations are great streaming devices, but for those who don't play games then Amazon are selling ROKU STREAMING PLAYERS and they are retailing for about £40. They are basically hubs for the on-demand services and you can buy one of those with the money you save on your TV licence.

Cancelling your licence?

Despite what the letters say, you cannot cancel online you have to speak to an operator who will obviously screw you over, so don't ring them or email them under any circumstances as these people are not your friends. So here's the address to write to
Tv licensing, Bristol, BS98 1TL. Or
Tv licensing, Darlington, DL98 1TL

Also do not put any explanation in the letters. Just keep it simple and here's an example:

 Dear Sir/Madam,
I wish to cancel my TV licence as I no longer watch or record television programmes as they are being shown on TV. Also, I would be grateful if you could refund me the difference of the licence fee as I have paid in advance.
Your sincerely.

And there you have it, you are now licence free. Just unplug your aerial, plug in your new streaming box and stop funding the paedophile BBC.

The NowTV box is very similar to the Roku device, it is less than £10, with the options of movies and entertainment for additional charges.

No ITV player yet, but it is promised.

I've not had a licence for the past 3 years. The TV licensing people said they would send someone round to confirm that I don't need one but no one ever turned up.
