You need to be covered by a TV Licence to watch or record live TV programmes on any channel, or download or watch BBC programmes on iPlayer.
This could be on any device, including a TV, desktop computer, laptop, mobile phone, tablet, games console, digital box or DVD/VHS recorder.
However, you could be entitled to a concession if you're:
Do you need a licence for a second home?
The TV licence for your main home doesn't cover you if you have a second home. You will have to buy a separate licence.
If you have a licence for your main home, you won't need another if you have a static caravan or mobile home and you don't use the TV at the same time in both places. You'll still need to fill in a declaration form and send it to TV Licensing.
