Do you have a license to turn that thing on?



Marmitetoasty says,”Everyone that owns a telly here in Britain, irrespective of if you have cable or sky, HAS to have a ‘telly license’ its about £140 ($280) a year and even if where you live just has a tiny portable telly or you have 4 or 5 big widescreens the price is the same…..its not on how many tellys you have…. you can have 1 or 10, you just have to have one license….. ” Full comment here.

In an earth-shattering HBO moment Larry Spencer and Spookelooneh are in complete agreement and advocate no TV at all. You know, I could watch “Lost” on my computer, so I’m kinda leaning to the no-TV camp.

How about you? If you had to pay for a TV license would you, or would you just say “no” to television?
