Finally ditched our Virgin box after we realised we only use it to watching corrie. Which means no more to licence and no more funding the bbc. Good old Xbox grin

If you watch live TV on the xbox you still need a license.

ginandjuice Fri 04-Dec-15 22:03:29

You still need a licence of you are watching live though don't you?

ginandjuice Fri 04-Dec-15 22:11:42

Yeah but we don't so no worries. Got my no licence needed declaration posted as well so we just show that now (if we ever let them in cus at the moment I don't)

That's a shame. It's the only one we can't get an xbox app for - we have iPlayer, channel 4, 5, Netflix and Amazon prime. No tv license here either. Just no need for it and never watch live tv anyway - no need to when everything is on demand.

ginandjuice Fri 04-Dec-15 22:19:51

I'm so sure we used to have it on the Xbox but I must be wrong! It's the only one we haven't got either.
We were paying £70 a month for
Virgin etc, now have Netflix and Amazon prime and it costs us £11. Not much of a saving eh?? Lol

PourquoiTuGachesTaVie Fri 04-Dec-15 22:23:00

My sister pays for Netflix, I pay for Amazon prime - even cheaper if you have someone you trust to share with wink

You were paying £70 per month shockshockshock

ginandjuice Fri 04-Dec-15 22:33:25

Yeah they kept putting the price up it was shocking! So we just cancelled it. Fuck paying £70 a month to watch Ken and Audrey getting jiggy!

Happy to pay my TV licence and support the BBC.

Brokenwardrobe Fri 04-Dec-15 23:00:59

Also happy to pay tv licence and support bbc, wouldn't mind ditching Virgin though but they do the most reliable broadband...

ginandjuice Fri 04-Dec-15 23:02:56

Fair enough but I think it's an outdated licence that should not exist, so I am very happy to no longer need to pay it.

Caprinihahahaha Fri 04-Dec-15 23:03:19

I think the Beeb is bloody brilliant.

pictish Fri 04-Dec-15 23:04:38

You prefer adverts?

DownstairsMixUp Fri 04-Dec-15 23:04:46

Good on you op. I don't want to support the BBC either so don't watch live TV. Saves money to smile

R4 Fri 04-Dec-15 23:07:20

I'm happy to pay the licence. Not necessarily for BBC TV but definitely for radio and the website.

Seeyounearertime Fri 04-Dec-15 23:07:46

We bought a RokuHD and get all the on demand stuff.
It's great. grin

Goodbetterbest Fri 04-Dec-15 23:09:16

Ridiculous how people moan about paying the licence fee, then expect to watch BBC programmes on iPlayer.

Mypubesarestraight Fri 04-Dec-15 23:10:33

I mostly use Netflix and Amazon prime.
I wish I could ditch the licence too.
