'More than 7,000' still watching black and white TV across UK

Recommended Posts

Many people don't have a TV licence anymore. If you don't watch live TV you don't need one.

Edit. Sorry the law changed in 2016, you do now need a licence.

How did they catch these 26,000 people then?

 

Would that have been with the "TV Detector Vans"?

 

:laugh::laugh:

They probably never caught all these people, they never caught me. I also know that at that time, around the seventies, a TV Detector Van could not tell a Colour from a Black and White.

These are the people who are still voting for Winston Churchill!

Yes, a distinction without a difference.

In which case they would need a colour licence (which also covers B&W).

 

They are using the licencing statistics, 7k B&W licences sold.

A license to watch tv? That's pathetic. Do you need a license to have a flush toilet too? Or are most people still using an outhouse?

Probably more than that still watching their radios wondering why the only thing they see is the speaker cover vibrating.

 

Apparently not having a TV increases fecundity.

I watch very little TV, but I watch in black & white. I watch a lot of movies -- about 95% of them I watch in black and white. I only watch color where it's somehow appealing. Otherwise, I stick with the vibe, the aesthetics of b/w.

It actually provides the funding for the BBC (not just TV, radio too), meaning that we don't get the issue of "advertisments occasionally interupted by programmes", at least not on the BBC channels.

 

At one time we needed a licence for a radio in the car.

have they checked that it's not just lonely people who died of old age in front of their running TV ?

that would also explain some of the audience ratings.
