TV licence reminder

TV Licensing is appealing to hotels and guest houses in Wales to make sure they are correctly licensed.

Hotels, hostels, campsites and mobile units must be covered by a valid TV Licence if staff or customers:

  • watch or record live TV programmes on any channel, or
  • download or watch any BBC programmes on iPlayer – live, catch up or on demand

This applies to any provider and device they use, including a TV, desktop computer, laptop, mobile phone, tablet, games console, digital box or Blu-ray/DVD/VHS recorder.

A single TV Licence costing £150.50 will cover up to 15 accommodation units on a single site. If you have more than 15 units, there is an additional fee for every five extra units (or fewer).

Mobile units or other areas where a TV receiver is installed or used must also be covered by a TV Licence.

For further information please visit the TV Licensing website.
