You DON'T need a license simply for owning a TV capable of receiving live transmissions.

That requirement stopped a long time ago, after all, how these days do you define "no way of getting live transmissions" anyway?

A TV (or monitor) with no aerial and no digital decoder can still 'get live transmissions', as pointed out, with a cheap internet-tv dongle.

Is a fully working new TV connected to a DVD player still considered capable if it's not got any aerial/cable/satellite/internet connection?

I'm one of the 4% - I don't watch the BBC (I don't even fit into your definition of a sponger, as I don't use iplayer [I don't listen to local radio either, but I have been known to view the BBC news website.... Sorry!])

I own 2 TVs, one BIGGGG, one LED projector, and one DLP. Lot's of big pictures all around, no TV license in sight!

From: Official TV Licensing website - What if I only use a TV to watch videos/DVDs/as a monitor for my games console? Do I still need a licence?

You do not need a TV Licence if you only use your TV to watch videos and DVDs or as a monitor for your games console.

You can tell us that you do not need a TV Licence by using our online declaration form. One of our Enforcement Officers may visit you to confirm that you do not need a licence.
