Can I get a free TV licence?

If you are registered blind (severely sight impaired), you can get a 50 per cent reduction (called a blind concession) on the cost of your TV Licence. Your licence will also cover anyone who lives with you, but the licence must be in your name. Information on how to apply for the reduction can be found on the official TV licencing website.

Unfortunately you cannot claim this 50 per cent reduction if you are registered partially sighted (sight impaired).

Remember you also need a TV licence if you use BBC iPlayer to watch programmes on demand through your computer, smartphone or tablet, even if you don't watch any live TV.

If you would like further information contact TV Licensing:
