published on UK Free TV

A TV licence is all that is required in the UK to display free-to-air TV.

As long as you do not try to pass the service off as "your own", and as long as you do not attempt to record or reuse the broadcasts you can show these programmes on TV screens.

However, if you are going to also listen to channels that play music, you should pay to Performing Rights Society (PRS) a fee of around 17p per day. You can find details (under leisure/fitness) here:

Hello, I work for KPMG and we run Freesat channels over our IPTV network. We have just moved our press office over to this and prior to this move they were paying an annual subscription for CNNBC, which they were receiving through Sky. I believe that this is a Freesat channel and that we can transmit this over our IPTV network under our TV Licence. Please confirm whether this is the case or not. Many thanks

Hi Brian, no, it was CNNBC which was passed to me, but there could be some confusion on the part of the person who made the original request. If it is MSNBC, we will broadcasting it within out IPTV network and only within out office buildings where we have IPTV running. Based on what I know and have been told, it shoul dbe free-to-air for us but just wanted to confirm. Thanks Briantist, I will check out the link that you posted.

Martha Zantides: Under the Television Without Frontiers EU Directive, and channel that is broadcast free-to-air can be rebroadcast on any network AS LONG AS no charge is made for the channel when it is rebroadcast.

This is why, for example, you can watch the BBC channels on cable TV in Holland.

Hi we have freeview TV in our office and staff listen to the music radio channels on the freeview TV so do we still need a PRS licence?

Ian Richards: Check on the TV licencing website - but your using a TV to get a live service (which you are), then probably.
