Black & white TV & radio use

J. Jones made this Freedom of Information request to British Broadcasting Corporation

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

Now it is impossible to purchase a new replacement for my 20 year old Black & white TV (none are made now), will I be in breach of the terms of my £55 Black & white TV licence, if I use a 32" colour TV with the colour permanently turned down?
It will be exactly the same end product use, as my old legal B&W TV

Also, assuming this same 32" colour TV is ONLY used for radio reception, (EG to listen to Heart) would it need a TV licence at all?

Yours faithfully,

J. Jones
