It will be easier to get a free TV licence under new rules - how to apply

4 0 1

Thousand of Brits will be eligible for a free TV licence without the “administrative burden” under new government rules.

Currently, anyone eligible for a free TV licence has to send documentation to support their claim to the BBC, but the government is changing the rules to reduce the “administrative burden” on those eligible.

The changes will spare people from having to do this in the future, instead allowing the BBC to automatically verify with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) who is entitled to a free TV licence.

It is believed that around 7,000 people on low incomes will benefit from the change each month.
