Do you want to convert your laptop into a Time Machine and travel back in time like Dr Who? Then you’ll be needing a TV Licence.
The law is changing with regard to TV Licences and BBC iPlayer.
From 1 September 2016, you need to be covered by a TV Licence if you download or watch BBC programmes on BBC iPlayer on devices which are connected to mains power – no matter whether that is Live, catch up or on demand.
For example charging your laptop whilst watching BBC iPlayer will need a TV Licence.
