Armed Forces TV Licensing

In Ministry of Defence (MOD) accommodation, on or off base, anyone who watches or records television programmes as they’re being shown on TV, on any device, must be covered by a TV Licence. This includes computers, laptops, TVs, mobile phones, games consoles, digital boxes and DVD/VHS recorders.
Armed forces personnel are not usually covered by their home TV Licence while living on base. In service accommodation, they’re only covered by their home licence if they watch TV using a device that’s powered solely by its own internal batteries, and it is not plugged into the mains or an aerial.


The MOD fully supports us in administering TV Licensing legislation.
It costs £145.50 for colour & £49.00 for a black and white TV Licence.
