TV Licence Fee To Rise For Second Year Running



From Yorkshire Coast Radio News.


The annual TV licence fee will rise for the second year in a row, from £147 to £150.50, it has been announced.

The Government confirmed on Thursday that the annual cost for BBC programming would go up again, having risen in 2017 for the first time since 2010.

It will continue to increase in line with inflation for five years, with the charge applicable to anyone using a traditional TV, computer or any other piece of equipment to watch or record programmes.

The announcement comes as the BBC faces scrutiny over gender pay inequality, with China editor Carrie Gracie having resigned and six male presenters agreeing to a salary cut.
