Over 75 Free TV Licences

Members have reported receiving scam emails and telephone calls claiming to be from TV Licensing demanding payment to renew previously free licences.


The official TV Licensing website says:

“Changes to the over 75 TV licence comes into effect from 1st August. If you are aged 75 or over and hold a free TV Licence which has expired, you don’t need to do anything to stay licensed until we contact you.

“We will write to all over 75 licence holders starting in August. This letter will let you know what action you’ll need to take for your next licence.”

(The scheme was originally due to end on 31st May but was extended to 31st July because of the Covid-19 crisis.)
