TV licensing position for public access computers
The TV licensing regime requires that, in addition to users of TV
receivers, anyone who possesses or controls a TV receiver and who knows
or has reasonable grounds for believing that the TV receiver will be
installed or used to receive TV programmes without a TV licence must
obtain a licence which permits use of the TV receiver. A computer will
be considered to be a 'TV receiver' if it is used to receive TV
programmes as they are being shown on TV in the UK (ie 'live'
broadcasts). 

 

Libraries, museums or archives that allow members of the public to use
computers, or supply computers to their employees and who do not
currently have a TV licence must decide whether:

*       to obtain a TV licence; or 

*       to implement measures to safeguard against the possibility that
computers will be used to watch live TV. 

 

Effective measures must be taken to prevent the use of computers in
receiving 'live' TV programmes' .At a minimum, the following measures
should be introduced: 

*       warning signs 

*       insertion of a relevant clause in Acceptable Use Policies 

*       providing information when taking bookings to use the PC 

*       providing information in general information pamphlets. 

 

If these measures are adopted, then a TV licence will not be required.
Access to non-live TV pictures, such as the Channel 4 On Demand service,
or the BBC iPlayer service, do not require a TV licence.

 

If an institution with multiple sites, such as a library authority,
wishes to obtain a TV licence, then each branch library will constitute
a separately licensable place and one licence per library would need to
be obtained.

 

The current position with the BBC iPlayer service is that it is suitable
for domestic use only, in a non-networked environment.

 

The above has been prepared by MLA, with the advice of the BBC, as a
summary of the current position. All readers MUST ensure that they have
checked the latest guidance on TV licencing at
