Cord Cutting UK Checklist: keeping it legal
Tuesday 16 February 2016 7:56AM

Questions and eyebrows, no doubt. But if you can answer honestly that you don't watch or record live TV, and that the aerial is still connected because you listen to Freeview radio, then that is the end of the matter.

My gripe is that the advice on this page and (I now see) copiously throughout this site, that (expensively and/or inconveniently) rendering equipment unable to receive live TV is a legal requirement, is simply wrong.

As for hassle vs. cost: the only real hassle is if you believe the scare-mongering and incorrect advice. And for many people 146 p.a. is a significant sum (congratulations if it's not for you).
