Our local TV family soapy, used their episode last night to scare remind everyone that they should be paying their TV licenses.
We have four channels that are basically for free, however you do need to pay for a TV license once a year.
This is all find and dandy. Pay your license and you get to see the channels. Don’t and you still get to see the channels…unless they catch you and you will then pay a penalty.
Now I have never had one. I’ve never paid for one. I pay for DSTV. Part of that includes the ‘free’ channels. So indirectly by paying my DSTV every month I already pay for those channels. They get paid by DSTV. I only watch those channels through my DSTV, so why do I have to pay for them again? I need to have a TV to be able to watch DSTV. Now because I have a TV I need to pay a license fee? For the TV that I bought? With my own money? To watch channels I already pay for?
I detest the fact that they want to force us to pay for the same service twice.
