can any one answer this question, someone has said that if you do not watch french tv you dont have to pay the tv licence
If you use any equipment capable of receiving a TV broadcast you need a French TV licence. If you watch UK satellite TV or even watch DVDs on a TV set you still need the licence. Strangely TV programmes viewed via the Internet on a PC, tablet or phone are exempt.
You have been lied to.
Forget it....you're down to pay, just like the rest of us.
I dont suppose french payers would be very happy that you would otherwise not be paying eith UK or french licence fees.
Good try !
Hiya - our french tv licence is charged on our Tax d'Habitation - you can tick the box to say you dont have access to tv etc but proving it would be the same as in the UK Carol x
