TV Licensing and Streaming Media

IT-MK Limited are being asked more and more about the UK rules on Licensing and streaming media, well the honest answer is we did not know the rules.  Therefore on behalf of our customers we placed a call to the TV Licensing Athority.  The official view is:

You need to be covered by a valid TV Licence if you watch or record TV as it’s being broadcast in a shop or office. This includes the use of devices such as a computer, laptop, mobile phone or DVD/video recorder.
Usually you only need one TV Licence to cover your shop or office. However, in some cases certain areas may need a separate TV Licence. Please check below to ensure you’re correctly licensed.
It costs £142.50 for colour and £48.00 for a black and white TV Licence.

So if you or somebody in your company streams “Live” media from the Internet and your company is not covered by a License then as the business owner you are responsible. 

We hope this goes someway to clarifying the situation.
